Before you decide to vote or get involved in my campaign, you probably want to know more about me.


I'm not a career politician.  I am a businesswoman, mom, wife, and community leader.


Professionally, I am a managing broker with Prudential NW Realty Associates in Bellevue and I also founded and directed the Mission Church Preschool learning and education center to prepare children to start school.


I've been active in our community and elected President of three different community organizations five different times.  Soroptomist International honored me as a 'Woman of Distinction' and former King County Executive, Ron Sims, honored me with the Recognition Award for Community Service.


In the Senate, I will work full-time to focus on attracting living wage jobs, reducing gridlock on our roads and protecting our quality of life – just hit the "issues" tab to learn more about my positions. I believe in putting people first, not politics.


Over the course of the campaign, I look forward to getting to know you, your neighbors and your community. Feel free to call me at (253) 459-3332 and let's have a conversation!
