Miki Holmes
Field Representative, California State Assembly - Assemblymember Chris Ward

Miki grew up in Lemon Grove with a love for music and performed in her first professional production at Lyric Opera San Diego at 14 years old. She graduated from UCLA with a BA in theater and performed in several professional musical productions in LA. Miki has always been passionate about increasing youth access to the arts, and while at UCLA, she served on the executive board of YOUTHphonics a Capella, which provides music lessons to underfunded high schools. After her family became a resource family for children in foster care, she witnessed the catastrophic consequences of a broken child welfare system and she became determined to improve the system to empower families and prioritize children’s well-being. She started volunteering on political campaigns in 2020 with the hopes of someday advocating for children in the system. Last March, she accepted a position in the Office of Assemblymember Chris Ward. As a District Representative, Miki serves as a liaison between her communities and the Assemblymember and performs constituent services. Her policy areas include education, childcare, foster care and youth services, arts and culture, and animal rights. Miki is a Court Appointed Special Advocate for a child in foster care, mentoring the child as well as serving as oversight on the entire case. Miki is studying child development at Grossmont College and plans to pursue a Master's in CD. Miki was born in Japan and speaks fluent Japanese. She enjoys singing, practicing yoga, and spending time with her silly rescue pup Shachi.
