Personal Interests

I am a product of distance education. I started at Western Piedmont Community College and earned my AAS in Criminal Justice Technology. I was a non-traditional transfer student. I am proud to state that I earned my BAAS in Criminal Justice through Lees-McRae College's Extended Campus program and then went on to earn my Masters in Criminal Justice through Boston University online. I relate easily to students who follow the non-traditional path as I have been where they have been. I am happy to help students achieve what I have achieved.
