Public Safety Teacher
I am a graduate of Lansing and Alfred University. At Alfred University I earned a bachelors of arts for Criminal Justice in 2000. In April 2001, I became a Special Investigator within the background industry completing federal background investigations for security clearance purposes throughout the Finger Lakes region. I am still credentialed with several different agencies, but have found a passion for working with students through coaching at Lansing. We have recently rebranded the program to Public Safety & Emergency Services. This rebranding will provide students opportunities to learn multiple pathways within this career cluster. I enjoy coaching and spending time with my family in my spare time.
