Welcome to my website! When I get passionate about something, it’s on. I am a veteran. I have a BA in Social Work and Criminal Justice from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and a MA in Public Policy and Management from the Muskie School of Public Service. I worked for a short time as a social worker after graduating from college and then I joined the Air National Guard initially to get help with my master’s degree. After I went to basic and advanced training, I was hooked. I felt a sense of purpose and pride in wearing the uniform. My new goal was to work on becoming an enlisted leader and retire after 20 years. Things didn’t work out as expected but I turned what happened to me and why my military career ended early into something positive. Now I have a deep passion for victims of crime and those who struggle with mental health issues. But I also have other passions like history, nature, state and national parks, the Caribbean, our ecosystems, and the environment. I am especially interested in protecting all of our water sources in the USA and the world. Traveling is my thing and I am drawn to the mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, and the ocean. I have a great appreciation for all life and will do my part to protect humans, animals, and nature. We should all work in harmony to preserve this beautiful world for sustainability purposes and recreation. Nature and water are healing. Get some.
This is my website dedicated to victims of crime: Military Justice for All
