Building pathways to the middle class
I’m honored to be your State State Senator for the 37th Legislative District. Together we are fighting to build pathways to the middle class for every Washingtonian.
A fierce advocate for our community
Raised in Seattle in a union household, I learned early on the importance of working together in community to fight discrimination and injustice. The values I learned at home are what led me to begin my career as a union organizer. I have lived and worked in our community my entire life. My husband David and I raise our family in Rainier Beach.
I have dedicated my career to standing up for immigrant rights, a fair economy, and a more equitable society. I’m honored that I started as a union organizer working among janitors in Seattle and farmworkers in Oregon.
As a non-profit executive, I fought for policies that serve all of our communities. As your State Senator, I am a fierce advocate for workers, immigrants, seniors, women, children and communities of color.
In Olympia and back home in the 37th I am a strong voice for our community. I stand up for our most deeply held values: inclusion, dignity, and justice for all.
