Who is Satwinder Kaur?
Growing up in Kent, Satwinder’s family struggled to make ends meet, so she worked a full-time job to help her parents while attending Kentridge High School. She worked two jobs and attended evening classes to get herself through college, all while raising her son as a single mother. She earned a BA in Business Administration from Central Washington University, an MBA from the University of Washington, and now works as a Technology Manager at a local tech company.
Satwinder has deep roots in the community; she and her husband Amarjit, a Boeing engineer, live in Kent with their three children; she works in Auburn, and her oldest attends Kentwood High School in Covington.
The people of Kent have elected Satwinder two times to serve on the City Council where she has prioritized public safety, affordable housing, and a strong local economy.
In the private sector, Satwinder works in logistics, supply chain, and technology management which provides her the expertise necessary to help find solutions to rising costs and supply chain challenges.
As small business owners for many years, Satwinder and her husband understand the government’s role is to help small businesses get ahead, not hold them back.
