Other Professional Experience: I had a general civil law practice in Walla Walla for 31 years before becoming a judge.

Community Service: Member, Christ Lutheran Church, Walla Walla Kiwanis. At various times I have served on the governing boards of Helpline, Red Cross, Little League, Walla Walla General Hospital, Valley Residential Services, Camp Kiwanis Foundation, and others.
Statement: While I do not have an opponent in this election, I believe that it is important to acknowledge that serving as your Superior Court Judge is a responsibility and a privilege. I look forward to continuing that service to our community in this coming term and will always strive to provide equal, fair, and impartial justice for all.
