Welcome to the third county council district’s legislative website! I am honored to work on behalf of my constituents to keep Snohomish County a great place to live, work, and play.
Here you will find contact information for me, my legislative aide, and the very dedicated council department staff. Visitors to this site can also find information on our district, read occasional news links, and sign up for my email newsletter.
I look forward to hearing from you should you have any questions about the county or our district.
I have had the honor to serve the people of Snohomish County since 2010. I am dedicated to strengthening our communities through economic development and improved public safety, and to working towards a shared vision for development, transportation, and preservation throughout the region.
I currently serve as 2018 Council Chair, Chair of the Law and Justice/ Human Services Committee, Chair of the Community Transit Board, Vice Chair of the Snohomish County Health District, and as Treasurer of the Trade Development Alliance. I also serve on the Puget Sound Regional Council Operations and Transportation Committees. For the Washington State Association of Counties, I serve on the Board of Directors as Past President and on the Legislative Steering Committee. For the National Association of Counties, I serve as Vice Chair of the International Economic Development Task Force, as well as serving on the Community Economic and Workforce Development Steering Committee and Veterans and Military Services Committee.
Born in Everett, I am a life-long resident of Snohomish County with roots in both Marysville and Lynnwood. My husband and I have lived in Lynnwood for almost 20 years and are now raising our wonderful son there. After receiving my Bachelors from Washington State University, I earned a Masters in Teaching from Seattle Pacific University. Prior to serving on the county council, I was a high school teacher at Woodinville High School, a librarian in the Northshore School District, and served on the Lynnwood City Council.
