Occupation: Industrial Appeals Judge and Judge Pro Tem
As a judge pro tem since 2001 and Industrial Appeals Judge since 2013, I
have served exclusively as a judge for the past 9 1/2 years. I value the
importance of being a fair and neutral arbiter to each person coming
before the court. District Court is often the first and only experience
people have with the judicial system. With my experience I will provide
compassion when appropriate, toughness when necessary, and fairness
My priority is to apply the law justly and equally. I want King County
