I am currently in my first year of teaching at Westminster in the Criminal Justice Studies program.
I completed my BA in Criminal Justice at Edinboro University in 2005 and my MA in Criminal Justice at Slippery Rock University in 2016. Between my degrees I completed the Act 120 Municipal Police Officer training at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2006. I was hired by the New Castle Police Department in 2007 and continue to serve there.
I've been a K-9 handler since 2009 and I am currently working my second dog. He is a Belgian Malinois named Eduardus. I was promoted to the rank of Corporal in 2013 and work on a squad in the patrol division.
When I'm not working I enjoy hiking, cycling, hunting and anything else that gets me outdoors.
