Before joining UPPD, I worked in juvenile probation.  I’ve enjoyed advising college women in my sorority Pi Beta Phi. At UPPD, I have enjoyed training new officers as a Field Training Officer.  I am also an assistant instructor for defense tactics for the department’s response to active killer training. I was recently named an Emerging Leader within the Business and Operations of the University of Pittsburgh.  I recently received my Masters Degree here at Pitt and was also promoted to Sergeant.


I love spending time with family and friends.  I enjoy cooking and travelling with my husband.  My hobbies include amateur boxing, working out and baking.  I appreciate a hot cup of coffee and a good book.
