Prior to attending UNC Law School, I was a materials manager for a start up factory, Schindler Elevator, in Clinton North Carolina. The experiece allowed me to understand the responsibility of structuring an organization to meet the needs of all the people in the community.
My political party should not play a role in my judicial position. As a judge, my job is to apply the facts to the law. My decisions are based in law, not political or philosophical beliefs
Poverty and systemic racism are the greatest obstacles to justice. Identifying the issues and educating the various community stakeholders is the best way to address these obstacles.
As an attorney for Wake County, I represented juveniles in delinquency court and Wake County in the abuse and neglect court. This experience educated me on how our judicial system affects families. Having worked my way through college, earning an engineering degree from Georgia Tech, and then working as a materials manager in the private sector, I’ve learned how to solve problems. My engineering and law degree, coupled with my work experience have helped me to understand how the judicial system affects our communities.
