Monday for their weekly meeting, the Lima Rotary Club invited the judge-elect of the Allen County Common Pleas Court, Terri Kohlrieser.

Kohlrieser spoke about her upcoming position as a judge and how her past led her to this point. She said she's both excited and anxious to take the bench after serving as a magistrate since August in common pleas court. Kohlrieser spoke about how her time growing up during difficult times shaped her. It ultimately led her to want to be a helping hand like she was helped and reminded the club to always remember where you came from.

"Everything about my past made me more of an empathetic person and I try and incorporate that whenever I deal with people," said Kohlrieser. "I'm not always the best at it, but I do try and understand, at least, where people are coming from because we all come to the table with our own baggage and our own lives."
