Behind district 25

Meet Karina

Born and raised in West Chicago, Karina has been a lifelong resident of Illinois’ 25th senate district.  Raised by hard working immigrant parents, Karina was instilled, at a young age, about the importance of family, diligent work and compassion for others. Karina’s parents were small business owners within the community and working at their store gave her the opportunity to receive a first hand perspective on the hardships of being a small business owner as well as hearing the personal worries of the working class clients that shopped at the store.

The Issues

Through the snow, rain, and heat, Karina knocked on thousands of doors, meeting constituents and hearing their concerns. These interactions have led to many legislative efforts including mental health advocacy, small business support, protections for manufacturing workers, and much more.
