My Vision - 

"Because Every Life Tells a Story"

Thorough & Accurate Death Investigations preserve human dignity and tell the untold story. 

Resourceful & Efficient Practices allows us to optimize our resources without compromising thoroughness so that we can provide timely closure for families. 

Community Education for Prevention empowers the community as informed citizens can help prevent avoidable deaths. I will compassionately bridge the gap between science and humanity.  

Remember, behind every case lies a life- a narrative waiting to be understood and shared.



Thorough & Accurate Death Investigations

As your Lake County Coroner, I will tell the untold stories. I will approach each case with empathy and respect. Beyond the technical aspects of death investigations, I will honor the lives of the departed by uncovering their narratives—their joys, struggles, and contributions. Every individual deserves to be remembered, and I will ensure that their stories are heard, even the story told in death. Accurate - thorough - and timely reports help families and the community. 

Whether the death is anticipated, sudden, or unexpected, I will ensure a thorough investigation which is crucial to those who are mourning today and those who may be seeking justice tomorrow. 


Community Education for Prevention

Prevention is key for a safe community.  I am committed to organizing educational programs that empower our community. From understanding safety measures to recognizing warning signs, I believe that informed citizens can help prevent avoidable deaths.

 We face the threats of public health outbreaks, fentanyl/opioid related deaths, homicide, and suicide. Together, we can ensure that even the youngest members of our community are safe, with everyone have equal access to well-being education, quality care for addiction, and public health initiatives. Information in the hands of the community is critical to reducing avoidable deaths and providing a place for everyone to safely live together. 

Let’s work together to create a safer community for all.

Resourceful and Efficient Use of Resources

For the Coroner's Office, our resources can be financial, people, animals and cutting-edge equipment that we handle with precision and care. Our county’s resources are valuable.  I pledge to use them wisely, streamlining processes without compromising thoroughness. By optimizing our investigative methods, we can provide timely and accurate results while respecting budget constraints.
