I have worked with Virginia Beach Justice Initiative since 2014, first as a volunteer, then transitioning after retirement to a part-time employee, and since moving from the area, as a consultant. I have 20 years of leadership experience as law enforcement leader, retiring as a Deputy Chief in my agency. I have a Master's Degree in Human Resource Management and a variety of professional skills such as policy development, training, strategic planning and budgeting. VBJI is the place where my passion and professional skills intersect. As a consultant, I am now focused on fundraising, social media and policy development.
