My family has a long history in Wallowa County, going back six generations from my sons. In the early 1970s my husband and I spent five years in Southern California. My heritage and my experience outside of Wallowa County helps me to relate to all the people of this dynamic and unique area. With 16 1/2 years of experience as an attorney, I have the background and court room skills necessary for the job. The people of Wallowa County have had a positive influence on my life, and I look forward to the opportunity to give back to them as their District Attorney.
