Some Personal Thoughts

I spent my early years growing up on the east side of Detroit, MI.  My Parents, grandfather, and great grandfather were all in law enforcement so I am the 4th generation.  My oldest daughter is an attorney.  My youngest is currently in college and aspiring to also become an attorney.  My son is a regional manger in the beverage industry in Denver, CO.  Most of my family is in the fire department or in some sort of law enforcement profession.  So I really haven't had what would be normally know as a job as it is more like a lifestyle.

Since being in this profession I have had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the United States and other countries.  This has allowed me to observe and interact with different cultures in the US and outside the US.  I began as a clerk in the Exhibit Section at the FBI in Washington. D.C.  Since that time I have been fortunate enough to be involved in a variety of cases that have been newsworthy.  Since 2000, I was promoted to my current position with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) with the primary responsibility of the investigation public corruption and selected white collar crimes.  Prior to that I spent 13 years investigation homicides and sex crimes.

In 1994, Vice President Jerry Alexander and Jerry Malone were instrumental in establishing a two year Criminal Justice (CJ) program at Central Christian College.  I was very honored to be selected by him to be involved with the CJ program from the beginning.  Since that time we have expanded the program so a student could obtain a  Bachelors Degree.  The program in Central Christian College is also unique in comparison to other CJ programs in the country.  We focus the four year student to be business oriented with respect to the CJ field.  This enables a student to understand the business/management side of CJ in hopes to have the student better prepared for advancement in their chosen field.  We also utilize internships as much as possible in a for the student to see the real world in addition to "book learning" side of the academic process.

My day job places me in a world where few want to enter and that is how it should be.  My position at Central Christian College is to prepare those who want to enter and also encourage those that want to enter but for a number of reasons shouldn't (it is not like on TV), to find another path.  It is a great honor to be associated with the faculty and staff of Central Christian College.
