Hi, I'm Heather
WHERE I COME FROM
I am a life long Conservative Republican with more than 25 years in public service. This service includes over 15 years as a Butler County Magistrate in Common Pleas General Division and Probate Court. As a Magistrate, I have presided over numerous jury trials and bench trials. I have conducted hearings involving drug court, adoptions, guardianships, estate administration, adult protective services, civil commitments for mental health, Abuse and Dependency treatment, and elder abuse/neglect. Currently, in addition to Probate Court Magistrate duties, I also serve as the Probate Court Administrator. With certification from the Ohio Supreme Court Management Program, I manage the one million dollar Probate Court budget and fight to be fiscally responsible.
As a Probate Court Magistrate, I know the challenges first hand that face an aging population. I am dedicated to finding solutions to move Butler County forward as a leader in the state and nation on mental health and elder issues.
Over 25 years ago, Chris and I met shortly after graduating from the University of Cincinnati. We married in 1997 and moved to Indiana. During this time, while Chris was earning his MBA from Purdue University and working as a sales engineer, I was earning my Law degree from Indiana University and working as a Superior Court law clerk. We then returned to Ohio and settled in Butler County to start our family. We now have a freshman at Bishop Fenwick in Middletown and a 6th grader at Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School in Liberty Township. We continue to be active members of the St. John Catholic Church in West Chester.
