Adams was sworn in as district attorney in January 2020 after being elected in November 2019.
She oversees an office that prosecutes criminal cases on behalf of the citizens of Lancaster County.
“While I do not think of my election in terms of ‘firsts,’” said Adams, the county’s first female DA, “I am incredibly proud that my professional reputation as well as my diverse background of serving both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney led to me being able to serve the citizens of Lancaster County in this position.”
Outside of work, she said she enjoys downtime with her husband and 9-year-old son
“because the demands of this job are many. I also enjoy cooking and being able to make recipes from food grown in our garden, all of which provides an opportunity to unwind, reflect and restore.”
