CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A woman who's served as a Nevada chief deputy public defender since 2008 has been promoted to the state's top public defender post.

Gov. Brian Sandoval announced Thursday that he was promoting Karin Kreizenbeck. He says she has a wealth of knowledge and treats her clients with dignity and respect.

Kreizenbeck served for a decade as a trial deputy in the state public defender's office. Her resume also includes stints as a law clerk for Judge Dan Papez and work in criminal and civil defense firms.

She's a member of drug, DUI and mental health specialty court teams.

Kreizenbeck graduated from the University of California, Sand Diego, and has a law degree from Santa Clara University School of Law. She's also fluent in Spanish.
