Friendly, enthusiastic lawyer who speaks 3 languages and currently works as a prosecutor. My job is to vindicate the rights of victims and witnesses of crime while upholding the U.S. and Colorado Constitutions for all citizens. I am also Chair of the Diversity Recruitment and Retention Committee which I created with the full support of the elected District Attorney Beth McCann. I am leading 13 other prosecutors and support staff in executing a 5-phase plan to increase diversity among prosecutors. We hope this plan will be recreated across the country.
