My goal is to bring the core values that I learned as a child growing up in a military family and during my 32 years of military service to the bench. These core values include faith, adherence to the law, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, personal courage, hard work, and above all, humility.

As a Judge for the past sixteen years, I understand that my decisions have a profound impact on people’s lives. I believe a judge should hear all of the evidence and reach a fair and just outcome without regard to a person’s race, class, status or the lawyer they hire.
