Senator Randi Becker is a third-generation Washingtonian who has lived in the area all her life. Her goal in life is to be an honest, respectful and caring person, and considers open and factual communication with her constituents a priority.
Growing up in Enumclaw on a dairy farm, she belonged to 4-H and the 4-H leadership program. She also belonged to the Art Club, lettered in sports, was presented with an art scholarship from high school to WSU between junior and senior year, and served as Worthy Advisor in Rainbow. After high school she attended Green River Community College and Highline Community College.
Sen. Becker worked as a flight attendant first in Washington DC, then Seattle, flying all over the United States, meeting many people in all walks of life, including senators and congressmen. When she became a realtor in Pierce County, she found that the most exciting part was the negotiation of an agreement that was mutually agreeable for both the seller and the purchaser.
Several years later, Sen. Becker started working in the medical field as a receptionist, working her way up to become the administrator of a surgical center. Along the way, she helped develop an Obesity Surgical Practice in the Auburn area and worked for Good Samaritan Hospital, where she started several hospital-owned clinics, including the Urgent Care Center.
Sen. Becker’s husband, Bob, is an Air Force Veteran and they’ve been married and living in Pierce County for over 40 years. Senator Becker and her husband made a difficult choice this year to sell their place after 20 years to downsize and move closer to Olympia. Bob has worked in trucking and has been a Teamster member, local 174 and 313 for 39 years, and they both enjoy fishing, hunting and working together in the yard.
Sen. Becker and her husband are the proud parents of two grown daughters and the proud grandparents of two boys and one girl.
