1. What was your major/field of study during your time at Stockton, and when did you graduate?
I majored in Criminal Justice and graduated Spring 1994.
2. Tell us about the type of work you are doing now and how that aligns with your career aspirations.
I am a Detective Sergeant with a Prosecutor’s Office. I am currently working in the midst of my career aspirations. Over the course of my career with the Prosecutor’s Office I have had the opportunity to work in several units such as the Narcotic Task Force, Special Victims Unit, Juvenile, Special Investigations Squad, Confidential Investigations, also known as Internal Affairs, and have been recently transferred to the Domestic Violence Unit. I have been given numerous opportunities to continue training in this field and I hope to continue my education in this field by one day attending the Federal Bureau of Investigations National Academy Training in Quantico, VA.
3. What are some of your favorite Stockton memories—such as a favorite class, professor, spot on campus, or social event?
I loved attending SSC in the 90’s. Professor Janice Joseph was one of my favorite instructors. Her classes were intimate, relative and easy to follow and learn from. I loved to hang out in “J Wing” and attend Greek parties in the Café, especially those given by the DELTA’s (Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.) which I became a member of in fall of “93”. The fashion shows sponsored by UBSS and the Greek Step Shows were always a treat!
4. How has attending Stockton influenced your life?
Stockton has been a great influence in my life and it still is. I am proud Alum who visits periodically to gage Stockton’s growth. I am hopeful that my own daughter will find it intriguing enough to want to attend. Class of 2020! 😉
5. What advice would you offer to current Stockton students and other recent graduates?
At this stage of your life it is extremely important to explore all opportunities that Stockton has to offer. I think that it is very important to intern locally and abroad. Foster great relationships with those whom you come in contact with. They always come in handy. Do not limit yourself. Think outside of the box, have fun, be smart and most of all BE SAFE!
6. On a personal note, what is your favorite thing to do on your days off?
I love spending time with my husband, daughter and son. We enjoy attending church together, lounging, shopping, watching sports and vacationing together.
7. Do you have anything else you’d like to share?
I am so proud of Stockton. SSC I LOVE, I LOVE, I LOVE IT!!!
