My legal experience is diverse. As a litigator, I handled complex cases in state and federal courts. As a court attorney, I drafted decisions and mediated disputes. As General Counsel to a large medical practice, I oversee all corporate and litigation issues at this practice of over 180 doctors and 1,000 employees. I grew up in Yorktown and have young kids in the schools and I believe the court should be proactive with our schools and community. I would be Yorktown's first female Town Justice.

I have served as the Judge of the Yorktown Court for the past 8 years & in that time have presided over the elimination of prior case backlogs and the overall modernization of the court. I have partnered with our schools & civic organizations, to proactively reduce drug and alcohol abuse in our community. Our philosophy of creative case management encourages improved behavior. Experience truly matters. We are proud that our court now serves as a model court to other communities logo
