Kristine Reeves is a working mom who understands the balance between working hard to succeed and raising a family. That’s why she is a strong advocate for working families, protecting our kids, honoring our veterans, and sponsoring opportunities that fight for a future that includes us all.

A Moses Lake native, Kristine received her bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) and went on to pursue a master’s degree in organizational leadership at Gonzaga University (Go Zags!) in Spokane.

She has served in a variety of roles, including Statewide Veterans Constituency Coordinator for U.S. Senator Patty Murray; Director of Economic Development for the Military and Defense sector at the state Dept. of Commerce, and now owns her own small business where she provides Community and Economic Development expertise that promotes cultural humility as a DEIB approach, is a certified project management professional, and uses her master’s degree in industrial/organizational psychology to support businesses in their big ideas to help build bold solutions.

Kristine is currently pursuing her doctorate in industrial/organizational psychology at a Seattle-based university working to “assess political institutions as places of work that need to work better for women and people of color, so our democracy works best for us all.” Kristine lives in Federal Way with her husband and their two school-aged children.
