Academia is my lifestyle. I hold an undergraduate degree in criminal justice, as well as a graduate degree in criminology with a specialization in research intelligence. (Only 2 colleges in the country offer this prestigious degree). Additionally, I hold a graduate degree in counseling psychology. My second master's degree was necessary due to a desire to continue in academic research within the field of forensic psychology. I have been employed as a forensic therapist for the past five years. As a forensic therapist, I am involved in both the criminology and psychology fields. As a therapist, I function as a family therapist and complete mental health diagnoses. I earned my certification as a "Nationally Certified Counselor" in 2009, and, most recently, have passed my "Behavioral Specialist Certification" test given by the Pa Board of Autism. My LPC (License for Professional Counseling) is currently being processed by the state. I am proficient in MLA and APA forms of writing. All three degrees were completed with a GPA of over 3.5.

I am familiar with numerous college readiness assessments, such as the GRE, and MAT. Additionally, I have proficiency in administering the SDS and COPS. I have earned my National Counselor Certification; which includes counseling for career development.
As part of my Master's study in counseling Psychology, I completed courses in Career Counseling. I have utilized this academic knowledge in my daily professional duties by counseling at-risk and high-risk adolescents in career readiness. Additionally, I am familiar with administering the SDS (John Holland's Self Directed Search) and COPS; both assessments aid in developing a professional course of study for those entering college.
I have been professionally involved in the criminal justice system for over ten years. My experiences include working with "at-risk" youths, academic writing and research, victimology, and crimes against women. I hold a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in criminal justice and criminology, respectively. My cumulative GPA exceeds 3.5 in both degrees.
