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 and in 2004 I applied for a sworn position and began a very challenging, but equally rewarding journey that continues today. I hold several law enforcement instructor certifications and thoroughly enjoy teaching and learning new skills. I have served my community in many roles within the agency including parking enforcement officer, patrol officer, patrol sergeant, detective sergeant, operations lieutenant, parking manager, and assistant chief of police. I believe in the mission of Montana State University and the role my agency plays in support of that mission. My hobbies include mountain biking, backpacking, scuba diving, fishing, metal working and travel.

Phone: (406) 994-1204 

I began my Law Enforcement career with University Police in 2012. I started as a 911 dispatcher, then worked in patrol for 4 years. Thereafter, I became a Detective with certifications in social media analysis, sexual, violent & property crimes, certified field training officer, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, and death investigations. I am currently the Threat Assessment Investigator for the Montana State University system and possess certifications with advanced training in domestic violence response, interview & interrogation, and threat assessment. I am also a member of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP) and have attended ATAP’s Threat Assessment and Management Academy. The role my agency holds is important and thoroughly supports the mission of MSU. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree with a concentration in Fish and Wildlife Management from MSU in 2010 and I have lived in Montana since 2006. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, fishing, hunting, and backpacking.

Phone: (406) 994-1209

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

I began my law enforcement career as a deputy sheriff for the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office in 1999.  After several tours of duty for the Montana Army National Guard, I left law enforcement for several active duty assignments and have recently returned.  I am excited to work at my alma mater from which I graduated in 1995 with a BS in Physical Education.  I also hold a Master’s Degree in Business and Organizational Security Management.  I still serve in the Montana Army National Guard and am proud of the 22 years of service I have given to this great state and the United States of America.  In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, fishing, hunting, and attending various levels of sporting events in and out of the state.
