WONF Director and
Lawyer for Harman International
Phone: 248-705-1955 (c)
A licensed patent attorney by trade, I handle all manner of commercial transactions for Harman (yes, that Harman, the electronics company that makes JBL speakers). I have run for township clerk and 'learned', and I am currently serving in my 10th year as a GOP precinct delegate. I was awarded Pro Bono attorney of the year by Lakeshore Legal Aid in 2018. And, as you can see from my profile photo, I try to avoid taking myself too seriously.

WONF Director and
Oakland County Assistant Prosecutor
Phone: 248-563-9717 (c)
After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School, I spent six years in Muskegon, Michigan as an assistant prosecutor. In 2000, I joined the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office as an assistant prosecutor and am currently employed there. I specialize in appellate work, and litigate in the Oakland County Circuit Court, Court of Appeals, and Supreme Court and primarily handle serious felonies such as sex crimes, robberies, and murders. I have worked on a number of campaigns for women who have run for elected office and, through my current role as director on the Board of WON, hope to support other women to achieve the goal of leadership through an appointed or elected office.
