Bio

Shortly after my first field operation for Washington state’s 8th Congressional District during the 2008 elections, I launched her political career serving the U.S. House Democratic Caucus under the leadership of then Vice Chair Xavier Becerra. I played a critical role in steering, advising, and strategizing outreach tactics for Democratic members of Congress to reach Asian-American, African-American, and Latino constituents. Since my tenure on Capitol Hill, I have leveraged my strategic communications and outreach skills to lead political campaigns and advocacy initiatives at the state and county levels.

Most recently, I managed the Julie Yang for Board of Education (District 3) campaign, which won with more than 60 percent of the votes in a highly Democratic county during the 2022 Maryland elections. She has also led communications efforts for the Hoan Dang for Montgomery County Council (At-Large) and Hung Nguyen for Delegate (VA-67) campaigns. For both campaigns, I’ve played a pivotal role in building a robust outreach plan that utilized a combination of media engagement, grassroots mobilization and multilingual tactics to build voter and donor bases.

Currently, I lead efforts to increase the political and civic engagement of Asian Pacific Americans at the local, state, and federal level as a board member of the Asian American Political Alliance and the Maryland Democratic Party Asian American and Pacific Islanders Diversity Leadership Council.
