Hi, I’m Huong.
I’ve been a resident of Dane County for about a decade now, currently residing in Southwest Madison with my husband, Andrew, and our two-year-old, Isaac. I was born in Vietnam and grew up in New Richmond, Wisconsin. I graduated from Macalester College in St. Paul, MN, with a BA in Biology & Psychology, and moved to Madison in 2010 to work as a project manager at Epic, and fell in love with the city. I briefly left to complete my master’s degree in Health Policy and Management at Columbia University in New York, and returned to Madison to work for UW Health. I volunteered and served on the Madison Public Library Board, and I was appointed to the County Board of Supervisors in July 2018.
I was excited to join the board because I feel that my background in public health and strategic and financial planning were critical skills for the County Board. I’ve served for the last six months on the Public Protection and Judiciary committee; we have a lot of work to do to reform our criminal justice system to be more equitable and just for all. The Public Health Department is focused on expanding our health equity in Dane County, and I am eager to support and take part in that.
As a working mom, first generation immigrant, a public health professional, and woman of color, I know I have a unique perspective to bring to the County Board and our community. I humbly ask for your vote on April 2, 2019, so that I can continue this work.
PS > I love traveling all over the world, playing with my two cats and dog, making beautiful cakes, reading all genres of books, and swapping puns with my husband.
