Question 1

List your judicial experience (courts and years)


Question 2

What non-judicial legal experience qualifies you to be a judge?

Throughout my career I have defended clients, prosecuted cases, served as guardian ad Litem for families, served as the administrative hearing officer for child support enforcement I have been practicing in all three of our local courts (Common Pleas, Juvenile and Municipal) as well as in surrounding counties. 

I helped run our family restaurant for over a decade before practicing law. This gave me valuable experience managing employees, conforming to regulations and reporting requirements, scheduling, ordering, accounting and working with the public. 

Question 3

Why are you running for this particular court seat?

Washington Court House is my hometown. I was born and raised here and I chose to raised my children here. Our community is very important to me and I want to serve our community.

I believe as Judge I would have the ability to positively impact the lives of our community (victims and defendants).

I believe that I could expand on the options through community control to help address mental health concerns and drug abuse concerns that tend to be underlying issues leading to some criminal behaviors while still holding ourselves accountable for our own actions. 

I believe that technology can be utilized to promote the efficiency and consistency of our Court and I would strive to implement the use of appropriate technology.
