All of my experiences have prepared me to be the best District Attorney for Gwinnett County.
I have thirty years of legal experience. That experience has been with the Attorney General’s Office of the State of Georgia where I represented all of the Criminal Justice Agencies in Civil Litigation; a law firm that hired me as their first Associate Attorney; my own solo practice which included various areas of law, including criminal and civil; and the Solicitor General’s Office of Gwinnett County where misdemeanors are prosecuted. I have taught paralegals at Clayton College and was a business owner of a gourmet popcorn shop for seven years in Gwinnett County and Atlantic Station. My work as a mentor of North Gwinnett High-school was particularly rewarding and I have volunteered with numerous organizations through the years that assist people through catastrophic and life challenges.
I am married to Travis Gatson, who is a retired Captain from Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department, and he is presently Chief Investigator with Gwinnett County Solicitor’s Office. I have three children and two grandchildren. Two of my children were adopted at ages 12 and 13 through DFACS.
I have overcome systemic challenges and seek solutions to issues in a creative and progressive manner.
I am asking for your support and your vote on May 19, 2020 in the Democratic Primary and in the General Election on November 3, 2020. I look forward to working with you hand in hand in this historic election for District Attorney of Gwinnett County and I promise to be responsive to the Citizens of our County.
