As a judge in Seattle Municipal Court, it has been a privilege to serve the citizens of Seattle and an honor to continue to do so.


Seattle Municipal Court is the busiest municipal court in the state.  As the court’s presiding judge, I oversee all aspects of our court.  I take seriously the responsibilities of judge and my position of public trust and have demonstrated a commitment to openness and accountability.  Working within budgetary constraints, I continue to help bring innovative changes to modernize our court, improve efficiencies and implement new programs.


During my terms as judge, I have presided over the court’s full-time Domestic Violence Court, Mental Health Court and general trial courts.  I continue to utilize my experience to provide effective and impartial rulings and hold offenders accountable while allowing them make positive changes in their lives.


I’m a life-long resident of Seattle, having graduated from the University of Washington and Seattle University School of Law.  I volunteer my time with organizations that benefit our community and serve as a judge for mock trial and moot court competitions at our local law schools.


I have the support and endorsement of many groups and organizations, elected officials and community leaders.  I appreciate the trust and confidence you have given me and during the next four years, with your vote, I will continue to earn your respect by dispensing justice with fairness and compassion.


Thank you for your support and I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of Seattle.
