Biography

Fields earned her Master's degree from the University of Northern Colorado. Her professional experience includes working as the founder of the Fields Wolfe Memorial Fund and for United Airlines.

In 2005, Fields’ son, Javaad Marshall Fields, had agreed to give testimony of his knowledge of a 2004 murder near Lowry Park in Aurora. Javaad Marshall-Fields and his fiancee, Vivan Wolfe, were brutally gunned down in their car in June of 2005, before Fields could give his testimony. Since then, Robert Ray and Sir Mario Owens, have been convicted of killing them and sentenced to death.

In the wake of the tragedy, Fields gave testimony on two different criminal justice bills at the Capitol. Rep. Karen Middleton dropped out of her race after winning her primary contest in summer 2010 to take up another job. When Middleton decided to stop running, she remembered and recruited Fields.

"12 weeks ago I was just a working-class mother, a working class woman going to work every day," Fields said shortly before the 2011 session began. "I take care of my mom as a senior citizen, I’m a daughter, and didn’t have this on the radar for me."[1]
