Law and Order may be a popular show, but if you're studying criminology/criminal justice/administration of justice, you know that the system and those who work within it are dealing with issues of life and death everyday. I received my B.S. in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Northern Arizona University and my M.A. in Criminal Justice from Arizona State University. And if you're in need of assistance with your criminology/criminal justice/administration of justice coursework, please consider contacting me.
I spent nearly 5 years working in the social service field, and I had the opportunity to interact with people whose lives are impacted by our system's laws, policies, and working professionals. I've worked with families experiencing homelessness and most recently with victims of crime, specifically victims of domestic violence. The nature of my work is such that it often times takes me into the community where I interact with the three components of the criminal justice system - law enforcement, courts, and corrections. I have a passion for working with and advocating for vulnerable populations, as well as working to make our justice system more inclusive and accessible. I am currently working for the Arizona Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
While completing my graduate degree and transitioning to full time employment, I worked as a high school substitute teacher for three years and really enjoyed it. My other experience working with youth includes coaching soccer camps (4-5 year olds, 10-12 year olds) and a high school team (JV girls), and working with Anytown at the Y (formerly Anytown Arizona) from 2000 to the present.
