I hold firm the belief that justice must serve everyone - or it
serves no one. Discovering the truth to deliver justice and working to
re-build trust in our justice system is the heart of my campaign to
serve our community as Superior Court Judge.
Seeking the truth led me to becoming a deputy prosecutor, working
tirelessly to demand justice for survivors and victims of sexual
assault, murder, and crimes against children. As a Judge ProTem, I am
respected for pursuing the truth with objectivity and fairness.
I am broadly supported by judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and
bi-partisan elected officials, who know my strong commitment to
principles of truth and justice, unmatched legal experience as a Judge
ProTem and prosecutor, and advocacy for the most vulnerable. With your
support, I will bring my dedication to justice, safety, and community to
the Snohomish County bench and ensure justice serves everyone.
