About Me

I have worked in Lorain County for over a decade as a licensed attorney, practicing both family and criminal law, and currently serve as a Lorain County Court of Common Pleas Magistrate. I have a passion for justice and the safety of our community and take pride in having an unmatched work ethic, firm knowledge of the law, and ability to make unbiased decisions that bring positive changes in the community.


If elected, I will become the sole female on the bench of the Lorain County Court of Common Pleas. I will make the courtroom a place to connect with litigants and the community, maintain an efficient docket aimed at resolving cases in a timely and fair manner, and openly collaborate with agencies and programs to make a difference in our criminal justice process in Lorain County. 


I look forward to meeting members of the community like you while campaigning and attending community events in the coming months and want you to know that a vote for me is a vote for an honorable, involved candidate, a candidate devoted to moving justice forward with both fresh ideas and traditional values. It is my belief that together we can balance the bench. Until we meet, you can learn more about me on my Facebook and Instagram pages and read about my educationprofessional experience, and community service.
