Información Biográfica

What qualifies you as the best candidate for this office?

What are the most pressing issues facing the public that you plan to address?

What will be your top priority if you are elected and how will you achieve that goal?

I will bring over twenty years of both business & legal experience to this seat. Prior to my legal career, I spent ten years in the private sector working in business. It is this mix of hands on practical business & legal experience that makes me the best candidate. As a former clerk to the Hon. Judge Richard H. Dinkins, I have experience with the types of matters in Chancery Court. I currently practice at Spencer Fane Bone McAllester in construction, real estate & business litigation in both Chancery & Federal courts throughout Tennessee. I have a unique practice in construction law. My experience in that area will be an asset to bench. I also bring a diverse perspective as a minority female to the court that will benefit all people.
The most pressing issues facing the public are intertwined with one another. There is social awareness of the continued plight of persons of color in our community. The public outcry is for equal & equitable justice for all. We also have a housing crisis prompted by an explosion in our housing market . Lastly we still have lingering effects of the pandemic which exasperate the issues above. I believe educating the public on the root causes of these issues & equipping them with practical tools that can be used to address the issues is beneficial. This court impacts all of these issues at some level. I plan continue educating constituents regarding the issues & solutions available for immediate utilization & the betterment the community.
My top priority is to ensure that our judicial system is fair & equitable for everyone, no matter who you are, your socio-economic status, who you love, your religion or race. For too long we have had two systems of justice. This erodes faith in the judicial system for all of us. I will accomplish this by treating all persons, entities & practitioners before the court with a grace & respect that is sometimes elusive for certain people. I also want to ensure that cases are timely adjudicated; this decreases the exposure & risk to the involved parties . Lastly I would like to increase the participation of women & diverse persons in the profession by partnering with schools & inviting students to the court to observe the proceedings.
