Pettersen earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the Metropolitan State University of Denver.[2]

Early political career

Before running for state representative, Pettersen worked for New Era Colorado, a nonprofit progressive political advocacy group that works to increase youth participation in politics and the government process.[3][4]

2013 legislative session

In 2013, Pettersen opposed a repeal of the death penalty in Colorado.[5]

2019 recall effort

In July 2019, the Colorado secretary of state approved the circulation of a recall petition against Pettersen. The recall's organizers had until September 16, 2019, to gather 18,376 signatures to put the recall on the ballot, but on September 10 they announced that they were abandoning the effort and not submitting signatures.[6][7] The recall petition stated that Pettersen should be recalled because she supports taxpayer-funded heroin-injection sites, and because she supported SB 19-042 (the National Popular Vote bill), SB 19-181 (Comprehensive Oil and Gas Reform), HB 19-1032 (Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education), and HB 19-1177 (the Red Flag bill that allows a judge to prohibit an individual from possessing a firearm).[8]

U.S. House of Representatives



On April 9, 2017, following Ed Perlmutter's announcement that he was running for governor of Colorado, Pettersen announced her candidacy for Colorado's 7th congressional district.[9] After Perlmutter reentered the congressional race, she ended her campaign.[10] In 2018, Pettersen ran for and won Colorado Senate District 22.


After Perlmutter announced that he would retire from the United States House of Representatives after the 2022 legislative session, Pettersen declared her candidacy for Colorado's 7th congressional district.[11][12] She was elected in November with over 56% of the vote.[13]

Personal life

In 2017, Pettersen married Ian Silverii, the executive director of ProgressNow Colorado, at the Colorado Governor's Mansion.[15] Pettersen and Silverii have one child.[16]
