Krystal Marx lives in the foodie paradise of Burien, Washington where she is in the second year of her four-year term on the Burien City Council. When not working on Council issues, Krystal works in the nonprofit management world in development and operations. She is active as the leader of a volunteer organization focused on homeless outreach and community-identified training. She attributes her passion for public service to time spent experiencing homelessness as a child, and a desire to stand up for her LGBTQ community. In her free time, Krystal enjoys chasing her four children, watching Netflix with her wonderful husband (an Army combat veteran), cooking, reading, and finding more ways to empower others.
