"My interest in Children Services stems from my prior exposure in the court system," she says. "I have worked directly for former Judge Yvette McGee Brown, as well as her successor, Judge Kim Browne. Furthermore, after joining private practice, I have advocated for individuals within the juvenile system, whose children were taken into temporary custody or who have served as foster parents."
