Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • In Family Court I work with families in crisis. Having the opportunity to help those families resolve their issues while ensuring that children are protected and their voices heard has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. As a former prosecutor, domestic violence court judge, stepparent and mother, I bring both my personal and professional experience to the bench to help families work through periods of transition, become stronger, and gain the courage needed to rebuild their lives with a sense of optimism and hope.
