Prior to coming to USF, I worked as an Investigator with the Will County Public Defender’s office. Therefore, I recognize the importance of bridging academic courses with practical application. As a teacher, I want to connect my students to their own larger professional world to encourage them to network and engage with those in the criminal justice field.
