If elected what are your top three priorities?
1. Follow the law.
2. Protect our Constitution.
3. Treat fellow Americans fairly.
What experience do you have that qualifies you for the position?
I have been an Assistant Public Defender for over a decade and am currently supervising the Felony Drug Unit.
Why have you decided to run for office?
Why not? Living in a great Republic means a child refugee can run to become a judge in order to achieve her American dream. I am running for District Court Judge because it is important to give back to the country that has given so much to me.
Tell us about your personal life?
My parents understood that staying in Laos after the Secret War would mean raising their children in a communist regime. In 1980, they exchanged country and heritage for the idea of freedom. In America, we grew up poor but felt extremely free. I have been married to my husband Ben for over 10 years and we have lived in the same home in South Charlotte. I currently work as an Assistant Public Defender and have been doing so for over ten years. I serve as a Board Member for both Anuvia Prevention & Recovery Center and for Larry King’s Clubhouse. I volunteer annually with the McCreesh Place, a supportive housing community that helps formerly homeless citizens gain stability. For fun, I enjoy biking along Little Sugar Creek Greenway and going to the Charlotte Rifle and Pistol Club with my husband. My story is about dedication, perseverance, and hope. My story is about reaching your American dream.
