I am a Montana native and began my law enforcement career in the United States Air Force in 1994.  I became a Peace Officer in the State of Montana in 2006 while serving with the Dillon Police Department and Beaverhead County Sheriff’s Office where I had been working in patrol.  I will be pursuing a bachelor’s degree while working at Montana State University.  I have been a member of the United State Air Force Reserve since 2004.  I am honored to have been selected in 2013 to serve as a police officer at Montana State University.  Outside of work I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and friends hunting, fishing, hiking and camping.

I am a native of Virginia, but Montana has been my home since 1999. I began working for the department near the end of 2000 in the Parking Services division. In 2004 I applied for a sworn position and was lucky to be offered a position. I hold several law enforcement instructor certifications and thoroughly enjoy teaching and learning new skills. In 2009 I was promoted to Patrol Sergeant and in 2011 transferred to investigations as the Detective Sergeant . My hobbies include mountain biking, backpacking, scuba diving, fishing and metal working.

I started my career in Law Enforcement at the MSU Police Department in 2006. I worked patrol for 5.5 years, then became a detective with the Department. I am a certified Field Training Officer,  a certified Crime Scene Manager, an evidence processing technician, and a public education and community outreach specialist. I investigate violent crimes against people and major property crimes, with my primary focus being sex crimes and escalated relationship violence. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from MSU.

 I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree with a concentration in Fish and Wildlife Management in 2010 from MSU. I spent several years working with USGS, National Geographic, BLM, the state of Montana and NASA researching Mexican Spotted owls, Grizzly bears, Trumpeter swans, ungulates, hare and various avian species in addition to paleoecology across the world. I decided to enter the law enforcement field as a 911 dispatcher in May 2012 and I was hired as a Patrol Officer in August 2012. I love my job every day and I look forward to carrying out my career here in beautiful Bozeman. On my free time, I am an avid hiker/backpacker. I love the outdoors, camping, fishing, kayaking and exploring new places.

I worked 25 years with the Bozeman Police Department where I served as a Detective, Field Training Officer, T.A.S.E.R. Instructor and Motorcycle Officer.  I retired from there in 2010 to join the Montana State University Police Department. I joined the Adopt-a-Cop program immediately because I believe in the concept of promoting positive relationships between the police and students.  I am still a Taser Instructor and enjoy teaching. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree. In my off hours I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, camping, sports, movies and working with youth.  I look forward to many more years of service with the University Police
