Snohomish County Superior Court
Trial attorney for 17 years in both the private and public sectors,
litigating civil, family, and criminal trials at all levels of State
Courts, Federal Court, and the Court of Appeals.
Other Professional Experience
Extensive experience in administrative hearings; dedicating over 200
hours a year of pro bono work within the community. Fluent in Spanish.
Loyola Law School, JD; University of Washington, BA with Honors.
Extensive volunteer time in educational settings for our youth,
especially children from disadvantaged communities. I also volunteer in
the YMCA Mock Trial Program, Bothell Youth Court, and many public school
classrooms in Snohomish County.
As the only candidate with 17 years of diverse experience, I have
litigated civil, family, and criminal trials at all levels of the state
trial courts, in federal court, and the Court of Appeals. In my
successful law practice, I work to empower our community by providing
access to justice.
Humbled by the endorsement of local judges, and community leaders, I am
rated “Exceptionally Well Qualified” by the Veteran’s and Loren Miller
Bar Associations. I am endorsed by the Snohomish County Democrats, and
was honored with the Domestic Violence Advocacy Award by Washington
Women Lawyers for my work with domestic violence victims.
While my husband served as a Marine in Operation Iraqi Freedom I
balanced being a working mom of two young children with college and law
school. My husband now teaches science in public high school. We are
proud Blue Star parents; both our daughter and son serve our country in
the United States Navy and Marines and graduated from United States
Service to my country has always been my calling. I pledge to continue
to serve with humility and integrity as your next Superior Court Judge.
I would be honored to have your vote. Thank you.
