Judge – 31st Circuit Court
How did SC4 help prepare you?
SC4 gave me an opportunity to cost-effectively begin my education after high school. I remember having the greatest instructors who cared deeply about the success of the student body at SC4. Attending community college allowed me receive excellent instruction from wonderful instructors close to home. I remain very thankful that I had the opportunity to attend St. Clair County Community College.
What do you like most about what you do professionally?
I loved the law while in private practice. I was a trial attorney, and it was a career that I cherished. I also had the opportunity to serve the City of Marysville as Mayor for three terms and developed a strong desire to serve my community at a higher level. As a Circuit Court Judge, I use the knowledge and trial skills that I honed during my many years of private practice to serve the people of St. Clair County. It is the greatest career that I could imagine and I am thankful that the people of St. Clair County have trusted me in this position.
Did you transfer on and earn other degrees? If so, what degrees and from where?
After SC4 I transferred to Michigan State University earning a B.A. in psychology. I was a double major with law and society as my secondary major. After graduating from MSU I attended Wayne State University Law School, graduating with a J.D. in 2002.
