Kristin Washington was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. She graduated from Swarthmore College with a BA in Psychology.
She has been a member of the Redlands community for 12 years, spending much of that time advocating on behalf of families on issues that impact their daily lives.
Since 2015, Kristin has served as president of a non-profit organization that educates community members on local, state and national legislative issues. She is a frequent voice for the community’s support for and opposition to issues.
Employed by the not-for-profit Medi-Cal and Medicare health plan, Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP), Kristin was instrumental in helping families navigate the Affordable Care Act’s enrollment and eligibility process during the healthcare law’s initial years. Thousands of low-income families throughout the Inland Empire gained access to healthcare due to her work.
