Community Service
I believe in second chances and volunteer with the King County Bar Association Records Project to vacate eligible criminal convictions. I believe in criminal justice alternatives for youth so I serve on a community accountability board for the Partnership for Youth Justice. I am passionate about gender equity and serve as a Vice President of Washington Women Lawyers.

Statement
I am running to bring a more inclusive voice to the King County Superior Court. I believe in the Rule of Law and that the law applies equally to everyone. I will treat everyone who comes into my courtroom with dignity and respect, give them their day in court, listen, and strive to do justice. I will ensure that people of color are not unfairly excluded from serving on juries. As a judge, I will bring my commitment to social justice and fairness to the court. I will work tirelessly to address systemic bias in our judicial system and ensure everyone has a fair chance.
