I began serving the citizens of Lynchburg as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in 2006. I am now Chief Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney, responsible for the prosecution of the most serious criminal cases and the supervision of many talented prosecutors and dedicated support staff in our office.
"I'll never forget that it is you, the citizens of Lynchburg, who I work for. Your safety is my daily mission."
As a prosecutor, I am a voice for those who have been victimized by crime. It is my solemn responsibility to get justice for them. These experiences have motivated my work in the community as well. I am the President of the Board of Directors for the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Central Virginia, a local nonprofit that advocates for abused or neglected children. I also serve on the Board of Directors of the YWCA of Central Virginia, which manages programs such as the Domestic Violence Prevention Center and the Sexual Assault Response Program. I am the chairperson of the Coalition Against Domestic Violence for the 24th Judicial Circuit (Amherst, Bedford, Campbell, Nelson & Lynchburg).
My husband, Eric, and I were married in 2007. We met in law school and he is currently an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in Campbell County. We have two wonderful boys. Our oldest son is Austin, age 6. He is in 1st Grade in the city school system. Our youngest, James, is 3. We love Lynchburg and we love raising our children here. Our family have been members of Rivermont Evangelical Presbyterian Church for several years.
