Elected Experience: First time candidate; not a career politician.
Other Professional Experience: Michelle works as an Emergency Management Program Coordinator. In the event of a natural disaster or a terrorist attack, she would play an integral role in our region’s emergency response plan.
Education: Puyallup High School, Class of 2007. B.A., Western Washington University. Master of Public Administration, Seattle University.
Community Service: City of Puyallup’s Parks, Recreation and Senior Advisory Board, a position confirmed by the City Council and involved with the operations of senior programs at the Puyallup Activity Center. Past leader in a local 4-H chapter and after-school tutor.
Statement: As an emergency management coordinator, I help communities plan ahead, families feel ready, and kids feel safe. My career has taught me how to work together to solve big, tough problems on a rapid basis. I’ll bring a fresh, focused perspective to the challenges Washington faces.
We’re never going to fully-fund our local schools if we keep sending career politicians back to Olympia. We need new legislators who are willing to break from the mistakes of the past and make the tough choices on education funding, traffic congestion, and college affordability. I'd be honored to earn your vote.
