Understanding our past can help bring clarity to our current experiences and provide readiness for an amazing future. I understand the challenges faced by those who serve our communities. I have 12 years of experience serving local communities in law enforcement as well as 14 years serving our country and state in the Army National Guard. I now serve at the individual level as a Social Worker. I returned to college to pursue a degree in Social Work with a Clinical emphasis so that I could step up and provide counseling to those in our community who serve.
