I truly have a passion for helping those in Law Enforcement and giving back to those who give so much to their communities, by helping empower them to achieve their goals. I have over 30 years in Law Enforcement with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office retiring in December of 2015. I’ve been married for over 30 years and have 4 kids.
I worked many assignments during my career, including Patrol, Lake Patrol, Motors and in the Criminal Courts system. I was promoted to Sergeant in 2004. I received numerous commendations and awards during my career that include two Life Saving awards and I was honored by MADD in 1994, 1999 and again in 2000 as the DUI officer of the year for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
I was a certified Instructor in Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus/Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and Drug Recognition Expert. A large part of my career was spent educating police officers and the public around the country about impaired drivers. I was an Adjunct Instructor for The Institute Of Police Technologies and Management (IPTM) for 20 years and was invited to speak at conferences across the country on the topic of Impaired Driving including DUI prevention seminars at local community colleges.
I was also invited to participate on a congressional committee in Washington D.C. on Impaired Drivers. I’m not just your coach, I’m your motivator, I’ve got your back.
