Though new to the center I have been at Penn State since 2011, having worked with Career Services and then as an academic adviser for both Biobehavioral Health and Energy and Mineral Engineering. Prior to Penn State, I held a variety of roles including K-12 special education teacher, psychological assessment assistant, and probation officer. I have several ties to the criminal justice field-probation being the most direct but my psychological assessment work focused primarily on court-ordered evaluations and my role as a special education teacher often involved work with court officials and community agencies. I also did some liaison work with the Office of Student Conduct while at Career Services. More personally, several family members and friends have worked in law enforcement careers. I’m looking forward to combining my experience and interests in this position!
