Criminal Justice

I have a bachelor's and master's degree in criminal justice. In addition, I have 4 years of my coursework completed towards my doctorate degree in criminology. I taught criminology courses for four years at the University of South Florida.

Public Speaking

I have served as a public speaker for the last thirteen years in many different forums including as an instructor at a university for four years. I have delivered training to a multitude of audiences ranging from Department of Defense Executive Leadership to high school students. I have presented lectures in diverse settings on a great variation of topics.

Sociology

My minor for my Bachelor of Arts is in Sociology. My Master's Degree in Criminology had an emphasis in Sociology as evidenced by 12 credits or four graduate level courses to include two Sociological Theory classes. I have taught two courses at the University level, domestic violence and gangs, both required a substantial knowledge of the discipline of Sociology.
