About Me

I have more than 20 years in law enforcement spending my time working in patrol at three separate police departments within the State of Colorado. During my time in police work, I was involved in training other officers in different specializations, active member of a tactical team, field training officer, and a patrol sergeant. Prior to retiring from police work, I began by teaching career at the college level for both undergraduate and graduate programs. I have experience teaching in a campus setting and within online settings. I am currently a faculty lead for Colorado Technical University holding my Doctoral degree in Forensic Psychology. My educational background includes an Associate's degree in Criminal Justice, Bachelor's degree on Business Administration, Master's degree in Criminal Justice and Security, and Master's degree in Forensic Psychology ending with my Doctoral degree.
