My path to becoming a justice has been unusual. I began my career in the Army Nurse Corps during the Vietnam War. After law school, I practiced law 17 years, served as a district court judge for three years, and have now served as an appellate justice for 10 years.

The number one issue facing any Justice elected to the Fourth Court of Appeals is to serve the people of Texas with honor and integrity. My commitment if re-elected remains the same -- to objectively evaluate the merits of each case and then render a decision applying the rule of law in a well-analyzed and well-reasoned written opinion.

I know firsthand that my job is to interpret and apply the law, and not legislate from the bench. The state of our judiciary is important to me. We must have judges on our courts that are qualified, experienced, and committed to deciding disputes in a fair, balanced, and impartial manner.

Based on feedback and accolades I have received, I believe I have earned the respect of my peers -- both lawyers and other judges throughout the state of Texas. Additionally, I have strived throughout my legal career to be a community leader and to improve the system of justice.

I have been active in a variety of community, professional, and bar associations. I continue to lead the San Antonio Community Justice Program, which I founded to provide free legal services and night court to low-income individuals and veterans in our community.
