Luc Jasmin III
Luc began his career working in the public school system and transitioned to early childhood education: working his way up from teacher to assistant director and then to an owner when he purchased Parkview Early Learning Center in North Spokane. He is a founder of Washington Childcare Centers Association and Northeast Youth & Family Services, and actively advocates for children, youth, and families in Washington state. Luc also runs Jasmin and Associates, LLC (dba Jasmin Group), a bookkeeping and business consultation company primarily serving small businesses in the Spokane area and is the Eastern WA Representative for Governor Inslee’s office. Growing up a first-generation Haitian-American propelled him to understand and focus on, among other factors: equity, racial bias, and cultural differences. His goal is to create a solid foundation in which all youth can be successful; regardless of their of racial background, religious affiliation, economic standing or any other lived experiences.
Why do you work for PV?
I do this line of work to make daily impacts on families and children's lives. Seeing their faces everyday, hearing their stories and knowing that I am doing everything I can to do good.
