Jasmine comes to Councilmember O'Brien's office having served as Community Organizer for UNITE HERE Local 8, a union advocating for the rights of hotel and food service workers. There she led the organization's community outreach program and engaged in issues addressing income inequality in the Seattle area. Jasmine earned a Bachelor's Degree at the University of Washington, and a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School. After law school, Jasmine worked at a grassroots human rights organization called Ensaaf, dedicated to ending impunity for mass state crimes in India.

Outside of work, Jasmine is active in the local Sikh community, a volunteer with the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance, and a board member of Got Green. Jasmine is a proud Northwest native, and enjoys spending time at local dog parks with her husband (and her dog).

Jasmine will be working on a wide variety of issues (like us all), including minimum wage, environment, sustainability and a few land use issues.
