Seattle, Washington. Prior to that, she served for several years as Deputy Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Relations for the city of Seattle, where Jasmin and her colleagues coordinated and facilitated the interactions of city representatives, such as the Mayor and City Council Members, with other governments, be they international, state, federal or tribal. Jasmin is a 2004 Mitchell Scholar. She received a Master's Degree in Equality Studies from UCD. During her scholarship year, Jasmin wanted to research the experience of women in politics and thanks to the US-Ireland Alliance had the opportunity to interview Tánaiste Mary Harney (Deputy Prime Minister) as well as participating in a healthcare research project run by her office. Studying equality in society cemented Jasmin's desire to be involved in public service.
