I developed a passion for criminology as an undergrad at Plymouth State University. I quickly realized that my passion from crime and criminological research meant that graduate school was in my future. About halfway through my Master's program at Umass Lowell I developed an interest in teaching which is what led me to pursue my Ph.D. at Northeastern University.While at Northeastern I began teaching part-time and upon graduation I took my first fulltime teaching position with Hesser College. After three years at Hesser I came to Fisher College in the fall of 2012. My teaching interests include Sociology, Criminal Justice, Criminology, Research Methods, and Statistical Analysis. In addition to teaching at Fisher I am also a researcher at the Center for Leadership in Public Service. At the Center we pursue grants and conduct research in the areas of traffic safety and public safety.
When I am not teaching or working on my research, I enjoy time with my family and friends. I enjoy Cape Cod in the summer, skiing in the winter, and a meal at a nice restaurant any time of year.
