After practicing law for 16 years, I answered a calling to serve the people of Milwaukee County as a Circuit Court Judge in Children’s Court, where I preside over cases involving children in need of protection or services and juvenile delinquency. I became a judge because I care deeply about the Milwaukee community. I was born at St. Joseph’s Hospital on 50th and Chambers and grew up in a home just west of there. After my Dad lost his job in the 1980s recession, my family struggled like many Milwaukee families. But I was blessed with parents who instilled in their four children a strong work ethic, the importance of education, and the value of a strong family. My sisters are stay-at home mothers. My brother is a teacher at South Milwaukee High School. My family’s experiences give me a unique appreciation for the challenges faced by families in Milwaukee County. I am dedicated to protecting the children in our community, keeping families together whenever possible, and ensuring the safety of the citizens who reside, work, and attend school in Milwaukee County.
I am committed to the rule of law, treating all participants in the court system with dignity and respect, and applying the law fairly and impartially. When I proudly took the Oath of Office, I swore to support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin. I understand my duty to apply the law as it is written and not as I may wish it to be. I faithfully exercise this duty in dozens of cases every week and it is a privilege to serve the people of Milwaukee County. I would be honored to have your support and your vote on April 2nd.
