In the year 2000, I was nominated by the 81st and 218th Judicial District Judges to attend a mediation pilot program to become a mediator. Thereafter, I became a mediator and mediated some of the most emotional some of the most traumatic, and some of the most difficult cases. Cases that involved the possibility of termination of parental rights. The majority of the cases were successfully mediated and as such, I was able to assist in the reduction of additional economic impact that the court and taxpayers would have faced. I have been a mediator since the year 2000 and continue to mediate cases. I'm very proud of what I have been able to accomplish as a Mediator and thank the 81st and 218th Judicial District Judges for nominating me for this role.
