Greetings! My name is Erin Aboudara and I am a local of this area for most of my life. I grew up in this public hospital district in the Renton and Kent community and our daughter was born at Valley Medical Center. Our family physicians are at UW Medicine-Valley Medical Center. I graduated from Kentridge High School. While I don’t practice nursing, I did earn my BS in Nursing at Seattle Pacific University. I’ve been married over 20 years and have 2 children in Kent public schools. I’ve been active in this community through volunteering with our local Kent Schools PTA’s, my neighborhood association, served on King County Women’s Advisory Board (nominated by King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn, appointed by Executive Dow Constantine and approved by King County Council) when we urged our council to create a more family-friendly workplace for King County employees, including passing paid family leave legislation at the county level. Each year I walk in the Autism Speaks Seattle Walk to benefit research on Autism Spectrum Disorders as our family has been touched by an ASD. Follow me to learn more!
