Candidate Biography
Personal Statement
  • I believe that my 20 years as a practicing attorney along with my position as the Executive Director of the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center give me the experience that matters. Protecting and strengthening our children and families is something that I experience everyday. I know firsthand the challenges that families face in navigating the court system. I grew up in a house with over 20 foster children and a brother from Korea. Perspectives and cultures were second nature in our home. The diversity is what propelled me into my career as an attorney working to advocate for those who could not advocate for themselves. I have worked in Family Courts in Onondaga, Madison and Oswego Counties. I know how the system works and what is needed for families in crisis. I am the only candidate to have received the highest rating from the Onondaga County Women's Bar Association. Lastly, I am not a politician and running for Family Court Judge is not just about being a judge for me. I truly want to make a difference in the lives of the families of Onondaga County and give them a voice so they can be heard.
