FAIRFIELD — Monique McKee, a  former resident and Fairfield High School graduate, has been named a Shasta County Superior Court judge.

McKee graduated from Fairfield High in 1983, from the University of California, Irvine, in 1987 with a degree in biological sciences and earned her law degree in two years at Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles.

She began her legal career in the city of Orange in 1992 and moved to Redding in 1996, where McKee worked as an associate in the law firm of Moss and Enochian from 1996-97. She was an associate attorney with Brickwood Law Office and since 2007 has been a judicial research attorney at the Shasta County Superior Court.

McKee, 48, and her husband Jim Cloney, superintendent of the Shasta County High School District, have four children. They live in Redding.

McKee, a Democrat, will earn $181,292 a year as a judge.

Fairfield residents Mayo and Earlene McKee are McKee’s parents.

Her father Mayo McKee said his daughter was going to be a doctor, but changed her mind and studied law.

“Whatever she puts her mind to she accomplishes,” he said.

While in high school, Monique McKee took classes at Solano Community College, he recalled.
