I was born and raised in Seattle, WA where I earned an Associates Degree by participating in Seattle’s 'Running Start' program while attending Garfield High School.
I graduated from American University in Washington, DC with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and a minor in Studio Art. While in DC, I spent time interning for WA State Senator Maria Cantwell and then went on to work at a top patent law firm before moving back to Seattle in 2016.
I live on Queen Anne, worksat Chihuly Garden and Glass where I served as the Chair of the Safety Committee.
I plan on launchsed my first art collection this winter while also pursuing a case against the Seattle Police Department pro se in the United States District Court of Western Washington in regards to an 2017 incident when I was assaulted by a group of men, then subsequently blamed by SPD for instigating the assault. A copy of the full Complaint with all PDF compatible exhibits can be found here. The lawsuit has since been dropped voluntarily in the spirit of cooperation.
While attending Garfield High School, I volunteered for Team Read, a nonprofit organization that pairs high school students with 2nd & 3rd graders with reading & writing deficiencies. Though the elementary school I volunteered at was predominately white, nearly every student in the program was a minority.
Most students in the program came from low-income, single parent households or households where parents worked multiple jobs. The children explained to me how no one in their household was available to read with them, some students coming from families where English is a second language.
I also volunteered at the Seattle Art Museum as a member of its Teen Advisory Group, I noticed that the demographics of the museum’s local visitors didn’t accurately reflect the cultural and ethnical variation of Seattle & suggested that SAM expand its radius of advertising to include Seattle’s more diverse neighborhoods. The expanded advertising increased diversity and established a program to provide teens from all socioeconomic backgrounds with free art instruction to retain newly accumulated variation.
My name is Isabelle Kerner. Seattle must vote to elect a collaborative City Council that is capable of working together to:
In 2020 I started my own business and better understand the issues small businesses face, both before and after the pandemic.
All leaders of Seattle must be open to teambuilding. We must work together despite personal beliefs, bias, or differences in perception. Respect is the minimum. That is where we begin. Professional and personal accountability will guarantee this. Solutions need to start now.
