I have been proud to call Montana my home for 38 years; Lewis and Clark County has been home for the last 26 years. My parents moved us to Boulder when I was in grade school, and I attended high school in Ennis.
I started as an entry level clerk with the First Judicial District Court in 2000. The office employed eight deputy clerks; we were still recording judgments by hand in books. My first courtroom position was as a scheduling clerk for Judge Sherlock. The courtroom position taught me a lot about the job; I gained a real respect for the clerk's role in district court, and have been able to observe several judges preside over cases affecting not only Lewis and Clark residents but also residents across the state of Montana.
I will use my experience and dedication to help the Clerk of Court's Office keep pace with our ever increasing case load. Using new technology and additional judges, the First Judicial District Court will strive to provide fast, effective, and efficient customer service for Lewis and Clark County and Montana.
