In the Past Year of the Pandemic, I Streamlined Court Processes in My Courtrooms to Improve Access to Court Proceedings and Allow Litigants to Focus On Their Families, Their Finances and Their Wellbeing. Additionally, I Collaborated With the Administrative Office of Illinois Courts to Ensure That Limited English Proficient (L.E.P.) Litigants Received the Highest Caliber Interpreting Services at the Minimal Cost to the 16TH Circuit. I Hope to Use My Diverse Background, Values, Knowledge and Experiences to Continue Innovating in the Interests of the Public.
