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.
