Chimene has worked in social services most of her adult life, currently, most recently as an Advocate Supervisor for CASA, working to find permanency for children in protective custody. Chimene has lived in Columbia for 12 years with her husband Jim, their two sons, and their black lab, Remi. The Schwach-Wright family are proud supporters of Columbia Public Schools with their sons attending West Middle and Hickman. They are also active parishioners and attend services at St. Thomas More Newman Center.
"I decided to run for office because I have been active in our community at both the city and county level working on the issues we all care about: education, economic growth, civil rights, and reproductive justice. Over the past few years, it has been clear that all these issues intersect at our state level where the supermajority has intervened to take away local control. I want to change that."
