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

Seattle Municipal Court is the busiest municipal court in the state.  Working within budgetary constraints, I helped bring innovative changes to modernize our court, improve efficiencies, implemented new programs and have demonstrated a commitment to openness and accountability. 

For the past two years, I have presided over the court’s full-time domestic violence calendar.  Having completed advanced judicial training at the National Judicial Institute on Domestic Violence, I utilize my experience to provide effective and impartial rulings to 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 received the endorsement of the King County Democratic Central Committee, 34th, 37th and 46th District Democrats, 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.
