​Biography


Sheri Schouten is a lifelong resident of Washington County, and a graduate of OHSU’s School of Nursing.

 

With over three decades of experience as a public health nurse in Multnomah County, she has spent a lifetime serving Oregon families. Her drive to help families across the state have access to affordable health care is the reason Sheri chose to run and serve as a State Representative. In her tenure, Representative Schouten has championed a number of public health policies aimed at protecting children and families. This includes her landmark bill, HB 3273 which passed on the 2019 full legislative session. HB 3273, would establish a Drug Take Back program and provide a proper avenue to dispose of unused and expired drugs. This program comes at a time when many Oregon families are struggling with the opioid epidemic, and would prevent further misuse of drugs.

 

Representative Schouten’s expertise in the field of health care has also led her to be appointed by Governor Brown to the Oregon Commission for Women, the Washington County Community Action Network Board of Directors and the Governor’s Behavioral Health Advisory Council.

 

During the interim session Representative Schouten will continue her work of making health care more affordable and accessible with two policy bills – one which would cap insulin co-pays at $100 a month and another which would ensure proper licensing for genetic counselors.

 

Representative Schouten currently serves as a member of the Joint Interim Committee on Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Services, the House Interim Committees on Health Care, Energy & Environment, and Human Services & Housing.
