I had always wanted to be a lawyer since I was a young child.  As a teen I would go to the local courthouse and watch criminal trials. I even took a criminal law class in High School and was the “prosecutor” in a mock trial. I was fascinated by the laws and procedures in the Court and, of course, the human drama unfolding in the courtroom. When I turned 18 I began my journey to become a lawyer. 


Once I graduated from Hastings Collage of the Law I went into the U.S. Army as a Judge Advocate General.  Right away I was in the Courtroom prosecuting cases. It was fast paced and always something new.  My next assignment was in Germany to represent soldiers who were charged with all different types of crimes -  some very serious all the way down to Article 15.    


After leaving the Army in 1991 I soon found a new career in the Lake County District Attorney’s Office.  I have been in the office for over 29 years with my last 3 years as your District Attorney. I have handled a wide variety of cases and have specialized training in the prosecution of child sexual assault, domestic violence and DUI cases.


Lake County deserves a District Attorney with proven experience and leadership.  That is why I am seeking re-election and ask for your vote.
