Beth Sigall’s passion for education advocacy was sparked 12 years ago, when her oldest son was diagnosed with autism. From that day Beth has worked in many different roles to help improve our schools.
Her advocacy began as an attorney in private practice in Arlington, Virginia where she helped families navigate the special education system. After relocating to Washington, Beth became involved in various leadership roles in local and Washington State PTA, and recently was recognized as the Lake Washington PTA Council Outstanding Advocate of the Year. Her advocacy in Washington also includes extensive work with leading statewide groups The League of Education Voters and Stand for Children (Washington), where she advises state officeholders and others in support of policies to improve our schools. She is a frequent speaker and panelist at local and state community organizations.
Beth also serves as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for foster children in King County Superior Court, where she identifies resources to address the needs of children who have been abused or neglected, and recommends placement plans for them moving forward. She is an active member of the Redmond chapter of Kiwanis International, a service club dedicated to the well-being of children.
Beth lives in Redmond with her husband, Jule, and their three children.
