Speaking at a rally to protect Roe v. Wade the day after the leak.

As your representative for the 22nd Legislative District in Washington State, I am deeply honored to stand for re-election. Serving my community has been the greatest privilege of my life, and I am committed to continuing the work we’ve started together.

Over the past years, I’ve dedicated myself to advocating for the issues that matter most to our district and our state. Whether it’s fighting for environmental sustainability, championing clean energy initiatives, standing for reproductive rights, or advocating for affordable housing, I have remained steadfast in my commitment to making Washington a better place for all.

My experience speaks to my dedication to these causes. From my tenure at Climate Solutions, where I worked tirelessly to promote clean energy solutions, to my role as Chair of the House Environment & Energy Committee, I have consistently worked to enact meaningful change. Additionally, my involvement with organizations such as Washington Conservation Voters, Audubon Washington, and Pro-Choice Washington has allowed me to further advance crucial issues in our community.

Beyond my professional endeavors, I am deeply invested in our community’s well-being. From volunteering and currently serving as board chair of the regional housing organizations Quixote Community to serving on the boards of the South Sound YMCA and the PARC Foundation, I am committed to making a positive impact at every level.

As a mother, wife, and proud member of the Thurston County community, I understand the importance of preserving our natural environment for future generations. That’s why I am dedicated to fighting for policies that protect our planet and ensure a sustainable future for all.

I am grateful for the trust you have placed in me, and I humbly ask for your support once again as we continue this journey together. With your help, I am confident that we can build a brighter, more inclusive future for Washington State. Thank you for your continued support.
