Vote November 8, 2022 or by absentee ballot

Dear Neighbor,

Thank you for visiting my website. I look forward to earning your vote for East Lansing's 54B District Judge!

As Vice President of the East Lansing School Board, I have worked to expand opportunities for East Lansing's students by rebuilding our neighborhood elementary schools; improving athletic, arts, and cultural education; and providing young people with the tools to thrive as world citizens.

As an Ingham County prosecutor, I have worked to ensure justice in our courts and our community by partnering with specialized programs to provide treatment and alternatives for minor offenses related to substance use and mental illness--all while protecting public safety and the rights of crime victims.

I have spent my legal career working as both a prosecutor and a public defender at a high level. I am a former public school teacher and an elected School Board leader. I spend every day in the courtrooms and classrooms of our community fighting for equity and fairness.

I believe my diverse experience and balanced perspective will be very valuable as East Lansing's next Judge. I hope you will take some time to learn more about my priorities for the 54B District Court.

I would love to meet up with you for a cup of coffee or a walk. Please email me at and we can set up a time!
