With 14 years of Senior Executive leadership experience, I previously served in the elected capacity of Clerk of Courts, and in the position of Warden at the Westmoreland County Prison. I have developed and implemented policies that affect the everyday lives of citizens of Westmoreland County. I have been appointed to a criminal justice task force by a former Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and my current role is the Director of Reentry Services in Pittsburgh, PA.
Because of my professional experience, I excel in the classroom teaching criminal justice courses. As an instructor, I share my expertise in the field and help students apply course concepts to everyday scenarios. To help students develop and assess arguments, I often task small groups with the challenge of making the best case they can for a particular view. The class discussions that follow involve interaction between groups who have often reached quite a different consensus, which provides further opportunities for students to share their personal views and engage in friendly criticism and debate.
I am also experienced in curriculum development and redesigning and updating courses. My passion lies in creating course content that helps students understand criminology and how to protect our community.
