I was born in Amarillo Texas in 1966 to Robert and Judy Eller. My family was what most would call “blue collar”. My father was a Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force and my mother worked as a bookkeeper and real estate agent. They taught me the value of hard work and raised me under the philosophy “if you can’t afford to pay for it… you can’t have it”.
Neither of my parents graduated high school, and I knew early on I wanted to attend college. I was driven to rewrite my family history. My parents could not afford to contribute to my education so I worked full time as a waitress to support myself. Through discipline and determination I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminology- completely debt free. After college, I received a scholarship to attend law school. In 1993 I graduated Cum Laude from John Marshall Law School in Chicago, IL at the top of my class. I have been living and practicing Law in Clark County since my graduation from law school.
When I am not working or volunteering, you can find me at my family ranch in Las Vegas. I am a cowgirl at heart and embody the “Cowgirl Spirit.” I live each day with courage. I take pride in my work. I finish what I start. I am tough but fair. When I make a promise I keep it. I do what has to be done and know where to draw the line. I am the Judge that Department 19 needs!
