I have served you as Coroner since 2009.  The Coroner is a death investigator and as such, is the final voice for your loved one and investigative experience is crucial for that voice to be heard.  Combining my years in law enforcement and as the Coroner, I have over 35 years experience as an investigator.

My goal is to continue to honor your loved ones as I work to guide you through your heartbreaking loss.  To understand all I do as Coroner, and my qualifications, please visit my website
