Occupation: Judge, King County District Court.

It has been my pleasure to serve the citizens of King County as a district court judge for the past 22 years.


As a judge I endeavor to improve the courts, increase my knowledge of the law and develop a better understanding of each individual who appears before me. I have served as President of the District and Municipal Court Judge’s Association and as the Presiding Judge for the King County District Court. While serving as the Presiding Judge I led the team that created our King County Domestic Violence Court, helped create our Work Crew jail alternative, and co-chaired the committee that recommended we create the King County Community Center for Alternative Programs day reporting program.


I have taught new judges at the Washington State Judicial College and assisted training judges concerning important issues related to domestic violence at the national level. For many years I have also volunteered for Kid’s Court and as a mentor for Kirkland’s International Community School Mock Trial team. Thank you for the opportunity to continue serving as one of your judges.
