I opened my court to students immediately. I wanted young adults to have their first experience in a court as an honored guest in a positive way. I educated them on court procedures and the different careers available in the legal field. I had prosecutors, defense attorneys, bailiffs, clerks and court reporters speak to the students to share their experience.
Even before I took the bench, I never missed an opportunity to speak and educate. I know that to whom much is given, much is expected. I am tremendously blessed to be a judge and I take my responsibility seriously. I have been a public servant since I was 17 years old and joined the U.S. Army Reserves. I have been a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. a public service organization for over 30 years. Public service is natural and necessary to who I am. After over 22 years as an attorney, serving as a judge was a natural and necessary progression for me.
