Proud Of My Public Service
The experience I’ve gained from working in Wayne, Pike and Philadelphia Counties is immeasurable. It has allowed me to learn things I never would have had I stayed in one place my entire career.
Bringing this experience to our DA’s office will make it even stronger and help it run more efficiently.
In an attempt to distract voters away from a debate about qualifications and experience my opponent has engaged in petty politics - Yes, this is an elected position and I stand by my conservative Republican Wayne County values, but the job of keeping people safe should not be politicized. The smart people of Wayne County know what really matters most:
It’s what you know that will keep us safe, not who you know.
For the past 26 years I’ve, expertly handled thousands of complex criminal investigations and trials.
For the last five, I’ve prosecuted those who seek to harm our children and community.
As your Senior Deputy DA, I work vigorously to keep our county safe by prosecuting violent offenders and keeping drug dealers off our streets.
I have the knowledge, experience, and understanding to lead the fight against the opioid epidemic to include; prison for those who sell drugs in our community, treatment for the addicted, and prevention education for all.
My committment to the safety of everyone in Wayne County is proven every day - there is no hidden agenda. While my opponent creates distractions, I back up my words with my actions, and would be honored to continue keeping you safe.
Strong Wayne County Values
Wayne County is a great place to raise a family. As your current Senior Deputy DA I am on the front line every day working hard to keep our County safe.
But I want to contribute more to the place that has given my family so much. I want to be your next District Attorney.
As a former President of the Wallenpaupack Area Little League, a supporter of youth sports and a volunteer in our schools, I’m committed to the next generation of Wayne County. Our children are our greatest resource.
Born and raised in PA, I live my life with a devotion to the principles of justice and to improving the lives of others. I believe in action above complacency, emphasizing self reliance and respecting those who protect and serve.
"I have also always been a conservative. I am a conservative person. I am by nature a conservative person. I never looked at putting a label on myself, I was not in politics, but if you look at my general attitudes in life I would certainly have the more conservative label put on me."
That is a quote from President Donald Trump in 2015 when questioned about his past party affiliations and I echo that statement wholeheartedly.
I am proud to be a member of the Wayne County Committee of Republican Women and the Wayne County Republican Party.
I AM a Republican, was born and raised a Republican and my values have never changed.
My husband and I believe in Wayne County Values and are instilling them in our boys ... A strong work ethic, perseverance and integrity, and always doing the right thing. We’re making our memories here and look forward to someday seeing future generations of our family plant their roots here.
Having worked in different political landscapes has enabled me to help create positive change in peoples lives, and it has changed me ... for the better. It has reinforced my belief in the values I cherish - Wayne County Values, and with your support we can keep these values alive and well.

Consider the facts. Ask the right questions of the candidates:
Have you ever tried a murder case to a jury? Drug trafficker? Domestic & Violent Criminals? Have you balanced a $40 million dollar budget or managed a staff of 600?
The ability to prove that you can do the job - to point to a track record of success, that is the measuring stick because there is no time for on the job training.
