I believe strongly in community and public service. I believe public service is about ensuring every person feels like they have a place and a purpose in our community.

 

I grew up in South King County and graduated from Kentridge High School. I attended Highline College and received an MBA in Technology Management from the University of Washington. I spend my spare time volunteering in our parks, community centers and our schools including serving in the PTA. I currently serve on the Kent City Council and with the following regional and local organizations:

 

·       State and Federal Policy Committee, Association of Washington Cities

·       Puget Sound Clean Air Agency Advisory Council, Chair

·       King County Growth Management Planning Council

·       King County Domestic Violence Regional Task Force

·       Multicare South King Regional Board

·       Kent Rotary

·       Mentor with Communities in Schools of Kent

·       Kentwood PTSA

·       KentHope

 

In the past, I’ve also served on many local organizations including:

•        Kent Cultural Communities Board, Chair

•        Kent Parks, Green Kent Park Steward

•        Greater Kent Historical Society, Board of Trustees

•        Living Well Kent, Board of Directors

•        Mayor’s Diversity Task Force, City of Renton, Member

•        Puget Sound Access, Board member

 

My husband Amar, a Boeing Engineer, and I live in Kent while raising our two sons. The oldest is a freshman in Kentwood, the same high school Amar attended, while our youngest is 7 months old. As a mother, I’m deeply committed to improving our schools. I believe education is something that no one can take away from you.

 

I work locally in Auburn for a private technology company. Good paying jobs and small businesses are the backbone of our economy. We can prioritize so people who live in the 47th district can work in the 47th district. As the Kent City Councilmember, I along with my colleagues worked with Boeing and Blue Origin to bring good paying jobs to the Kent valley.
