    I received my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in African American and Diaspora Studies Spring 2013 from the University of Wyoming. After receiving my M.S.C.J. degree I plan to go on to a PH.D. program and pursue a career in Juvenile Corrections while working to improve the lives of youth minorities, so they will not end up in the correctional system. My interests are in African American studies, Juvenile Justice System and corrections. I look forward to seeing what the future has to offer me.

    I graduated with my BA in Criminology from The University of Texas at Dallas in 2007. While in undergrad, I worked with the UT Dallas Police Department as a Lead Community Service Officer compiling patrol statistics for reporting to the University of Texas System. I also held an internship with the Collin County District Attorney’s Office assisting prosecutor’s in voir dire proceedings, and with the Institute for Law Enforcement Administration at the Center for American and International Law. Since enrolling at Texas State, I have had the opportunity to work with the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center where I assisted in the publication of the Best Practices in Court Security handbook.

    I graduated cum laude in Spring 2013 from Texas State with my B.S.C.J. with a minor in forensic psychology. I hope to become a professor one day, but in the meantime I am looking forward to the opportunities available to me in the masters program. My current research interests are psychological issues and which punishments work best for specific offender types. Being a student at Texas State has taught me to always challenge myself, a philosophy I know will get me through the master’s program and hopefully to a PhD.
