I have lived in Seattle and the 46th District for 30 years, and both my kids were born and grew up here. I have worked for Harborview/University of Washington as a research coordinator and for Public Health - Seattle & King County in the Violence & Injury Prevention unit. My husband has been self-employed as an architect and contractor for 20 years, and I have been an active partner in that business for many years. As a small business owner, I have seen firsthand the impact of regulations and taxes on the ability to run a business and hire employees.

Growing up, my family sponsored many refugees coming from Communist countries in both Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Those experiences impressed on me the tremendous value of freedom and the wonderful opportunities that the United States offers. My mother’s determination to do what we could to help others is one that I always want to emulate.

Wanting to have the skills to help others, I majored in biology at Wheaton College (IL) and went on to earn a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.  I worked in injury prevention research, first at University of North Carolina, then UCLA and Harborview/University of Washington.

While our children were in Seattle Public Schools, I served on the PTA/PTO boards of both Nathan Hale High School and Ingraham High School, as well as on the Traffic Safety Committee of Jane Addams Middle School when it opened as a new neighborhood middle school.

I am currently the Chair of the 46th District Republicans.

I have been active in Washington state legislative hearings for over six years and have been dismayed at the dismissal of opposing views by Democratic legislators who chaired committees.  I was appalled at many of the bills that were passed on a party line vote, which helped motivate me to run to give voters an alternative.
