Born and raised in the 49th Legislative District, Annette comes to Olympia a champion and advocate of education, small business, affordable health care, and senior and veterans affairs.
Annette brings nearly 30 years of public and private sector knowledge, including valuable experience on the Association of Washington Business Board of Directors, the Washington State Hospital Association's Public Policy Advisory Group and the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce's Public Policy Advisory Committee.
Most recently associated with a non-profit medical clinic, Annette has also worked with the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce and at C-TRAN, our local public transit system in Clark County. As both a leader in her community and a mother, Annette approaches challenges head-on to find common sense and compassionate solutions.
Annette views education and jobs as her top priorities this session, and believes they are best addressed through a balanced approach that starts with education and follows through with good jobs, not just for those in the 49th District but in communities across the state.
Annette lives in Vancouver with her husband and daughter.
