Working Hard For Working Families
OVERCOMING BARRIERS THROUGH EDUCATION
After spending much of her childhood in homeless shelters and foster homes, T’wina dedicated herself to getting her education to create opportunity, working hard to finish high school with the goal of becoming an educator. When her family was transferred to Pierce County, she worked with kids at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and graduated with bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UPS.
COMMITMENT TO EXPANDING OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL
As an educator, school board member and mom, T’wina has worked to help every student reach their greatest potential. She founded and led an award-winning nonprofit that empowers young women and builds positive self-esteem. As a member of the University Place School Board, she has brought people together to ensure our local schools have the resources they need to provide a high-quality education.
VISION TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR LOCAL WORKING FAMILIES.
T’wina knows too many local families work hard and play by the rules but still struggle to make ends meet. In the State Senate, she’ll fight to empower working families, including lowering the cost of health care, expanding small business opportunities, and building an economy that works for all of us.
