Ready to Serve

I’m running for District Court Judge, Department 10 to serve the people of Washoe County.

It has been my honor and privilege to serve Nevada as a lawyer since 1998.

Now it’s time for me to give back to my community. I need your vote to get there.

Putting My Experience to Work

When I was young my older sister was involved in a horrific car accident that left her severely injured and eventually took her life. That experience was transformational not only in my career but in my life as a whole. I knew then that I wanted to dedicate my life to helping other folks in desperate situations.

This experience led me to pursue a career path in counseling, earning both my undergraduate and Master’s degrees in recreation therapy and counseling. I found the work rewarding and fulfilling but limited in scope. I felt I could make a larger impact in the legal field and after almost ten years working as a Rehabilitation Counselor, I decided to apply for law school. I attended Quinnipiac University’s School of Law, graduated in 1998, and passed the bar that same year. After several legal jobs, I decided to “hang up my own shingle” in 2002 and have run my own private legal practice in the heart of beautiful midtown Reno ever since.
