It is an honor and a privilege to serve as Clallam County's first female
Superior Court Judge. It is a responsibility that I take very seriously.
As your judge, I will vigorously protect our system of open courts and
judicial independence. My goal and commitment to the citizens of Clallam
County is to make sure legal matters are handled efficiently,
competently and according to law. I believe in treating everyone who
appears in front of me with courtesy and respect. Those who have
committed crimes will be treated fairly but will be held accountable.
My hope is that people who have appeared in front of me feel they were
heard, and their issue understood - even if the ultimate decision did
not go their way.
I strongly believe in therapeutic courts and am currently the presiding
drug court judge. The County Law and Justice Committee of which I am a
member is working hard to establish a mental health court.
