Interests: Criminal Justice
I am the tenth Public Defender of Cook County sworn in April 1, 2015. My appointment was the culmination of 27 years of representing the indigent accused. I began as an Assistant Public Defender in 1987 in the Juvenile Division and over the years have worked in the following divisions: the Felony Trial Division, as Chief Public Defender of the Bridgeview Courthouse, Capital Case Coordinator, Deputy Chief of the Homicide Task Force, and Deputy Chief of the Felony Trial Division. Lastly 2012, I became the Deputy Public Defender in charge of all five Suburban districts in Cook County and two years later became the second female Public Defender to be appointed. I am committed to reducing incarceration of my clients by supporting smart, fair, and non-discriminatory criminal justice reform at every stage of the process, and through a holistic client-centered approach.
