Active / Retired: Retired
I am a retired Peace Officer/Detective. I have served a multitude of assignments, including Patrol, Undercover Narcotics, Street Level Narcotics, U.S./Mexico Border Cartel Operations), multi-juridical gang task force, counter-terrorism task force, and Intel Detective.
I have been an AZPOST-certified instructor, holding AZPOST certifications Law Enforcement Fitness Instructor. I also taught southwest gangs and Terrorisms classes.
After a 60-foot fall, I recovered and learned to adapt to my injuries. Throughout my career, I often dealt with significant injuries and worked through the recovery process, healing from 32 surgeries. I now teach Yoga to help others recover from injuries.
During my career, I was on the Critical Incident Stress Management team and was fortunate enough to be the benevolent fund president. I have mentored many young officers during my career and am still a mentor in retirement. I love to utilize the skills I learned from my training, experience, and determination to instruct, guide, and mentor active-duty Police Officers.
I love all water sports, hiking with my dogs, and cooking for friends and family in my free time. I live in Arizona, and you'll find me outside most of the time.
