Why running: “As a certified family law specialist, I have devoted my life to protecting children and families. Currently, we have no family law attorneys on the bench, and we need someone with the skill, experience and emotional fortitude of a family law specialist as our next judge. … It’s one of the most, if not the most, difficult areas of the law that there is. It touches everyone.”

Judicial philosophy: “You need to hear the people, hear the facts, get the information and apply the law honestly. You need to say what you mean and mean what you say, and be honest with the people.”
