Why are you seeking this office?
I am the current Douglas County coroner and I have dedicated my professional life to the medicolegal investigation of death. I am the first Board Certified Medicolegal Death Investigator Qualified Coroner in the history of Douglas County. I am a highly trained, degreed professional who leverages years of experience, deep knowledge, compassion, a mind towards community and prioritizes giving back.
What makes you the best choice for coroner?
Douglas County needs a coroner who can do the work. Being the coroner is more than signing papers, it takes medicolegal understanding and credentials, a knowledge that is earned through years of experience and compassion to tie all the moving parts together. I am proud of the work we have done over the last four years and I look forward to further professionalizing the Douglas County Coroner's Office by leveraging my decades of training, experience and my heart for people.
What are the most important traits or skills for a coroner to possess?
A coroner must possess proper training, a working knowledge in medicolegal death investigation and years of experience. I have participated in tens of thousands of death investigations in my 27 years in the Medicolegal Death Investigation profession. This experience will always be used to engage the living for the prevention of death through public health initiatives and education of citizens.
What must an effective coroner accomplish?
The coroner is responsible for all aspects of the office. Some of the main duties include: concluding the manner of death through medicolegal training and experience, testify in criminal and civil court, notify the family/next of kin, maintain and reducing budgetary costs, preserving life through suicide prevention and improving or saving life by facilitating the final wishes of the departed through the gift of tissue donation and much more. The coroner's office contracts with board certified forensic pathologists to perform autopsies, many of which I assist on.
What else should voters know about you?
I'm not, and never have been a politician. I was elected due to my credentials, experience and proven history of providing care for families on behalf of the community. I invite all voters to vet this very important position independent of political beliefs. I am transparent enough that you can prove I do not bring politics to the exam table, conference room table or the dinner table of those I serve. Thank you in advance for your mature vote.
