Sheri Schouten has more than 30 years of experience as a public health nurse. She has spent a lifetime helping families in Oregon raise healthy children. Her expertise led her to be appointed by the Governor to the Oregon Commission on Women, where she can help shape family-friendly policies. She is a lifetime resident of Washington County, raising three sons there, all proud college graduates.
Helping families like hers not just get by but get ahead is the reason Sheri chose to serve as State Representative for her community. During the 2017 Legislative Session she championed a number of public health policies aimed at protecting children and families. These include HB 2644, which requires that newborns receive lifesaving vitamin k supplements by the most effective means available, and HB 3404, which requires children under the age of two to be seated in rear facing car seats, aligning Oregon statute with recommendations made by the National Academy of Pediatrics.
During the interim Representative Schouten will continue her service as legislative liaison to the Oregon Commission for Women, and will join the Washington County Community Action Network Board of Directors.
Representative Schouten serves as a member of the House Health Care, House Early Childhood Development & Family Supports, and Joint Ways and Means Human Services Committees.
