I devoted my career to public service in 1993 when I helped the City of Seattle introduce water conservation and recycling programs. I went on to work in the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability and Environment, where I helped to launch Seattle’s Climate Protection Initiative, that led to the national US Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement.
In my current position with the City of Renton, I have reached out to long-time residents and recent arrivals to make sure they have access to the services they need.
As a resident of King County for the past 25 years, I understand what we value about living here and will work to protect it. I will increase opportunity for all people - opportunities for good jobs and a livable community.
I will make sure that all members of our community benefit from a strong economy, while protecting the beautiful natural environment we hold dear. I will make sure that the Port of Seattle is held accountable and makes wise use of public resources. I will work to build healthy communities where an inclusive economy creates opportunities and shared prosperity for all. And I will ensure that the Port’s actions uphold the values that we share.
I grew up in India, the only daughter of a business executive and a college professor. I came to the U.S. in 1986, eventually settling down in east King County. I put down roots and raised my son, while working for the cities of Seattle and Renton. My brother's family and my parents also live in King County.
