“I became a public defender after growing up in Snohomish County and witnessing firsthand how the criminal justice system discriminates between members of different socioeconomic groups. I believe everyone deserves to be treated equally by our system and hope to provide the best possible representation to ensure the Constitutional Rights of all our citizens are respected and upheld.”
