Experience:
I have thirty years of public safety experience, including over twenty-six years with the City of Troy Police Department, where I functioned in virtually every area of a large municipal police operation. I retired as a Captain, which is second in command under the Chief of Police. I served the City of Milan as both Chief of Police and City Administrator after leaving Troy. I had training and teaching experience during my career in public safety. I began my career with Ferris State University in January, 2017 as a full-time Faculty/Advisor in the Statewide Criminal Justice Program.

Research:
During my tenure at the City of Troy Police Department, as well as the City of Milan, especially in middle and executive level management positions, I was responsible for and have extensive experience in research, development, and implementation of best practices, tactics, policy and procedure, internal affairs, human resources, civil litigation, and change management.

Professional Interests:
The field of Criminal Justice is critical to our society's safety, stability, and security; it represents a calling to make a positive difference. Attracting students to this field, as well as equipping them with the skills, knowledge, attributes, and expertise to succeed, using my educational and professional experience as a foundation, represents my current professional interest and focus.
