Ms. Koss Vallejo has been involved with Democratic advocacy and outreach her entire life. Her mother, a Colombian immigrant and mental health professional, and her father, an electrician member of IBEW Local 494 and long-time activist, instilled progressive values in her from a very young age. After her own unplanned pregnancy and abortion at age 17, Natalia spent the next 13 years of her career devoted to reproductive justice and advocacy, working with organizations like Exhale Pro-Voice, Planned Parenthood, and NARAL Pro-Choice Washington. She has also worked as a consultant and field organizer for several grassroots poitical campaigns in her home state of Wisconsin. She earned her degree from University of Wisconsin with a dual major in Latin American Studies and Women’s Studies, with minor certificates in LGBTQA and Caribbeans/U.S. Latino studies.

Natalia moved to Seattle, WA in 2016 after falling in love with the Pacific Northwest while on vacation. She loves gardening, cooking, and playing pool and when she’s not fighting for progressive policy, she’s obsessively watching Game of Thrones or Star Trek: The Next Generation. Natalia is thrilled to join the King County Democrats and is ready to get to work helping Democrats win in King County!
