I think it serves everyone better to have a more peaceful process.”
Her legal background includes service as a teaching assistant of family law legal writing, a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate for children, a Judicial Extern for the 19th Judicial Circuit court, and an executive board member for If/When/How.
