I am the Law Enforcement instructor at the Florence Career Center.  Prior to coming to the Career Center I was in Law Enforcement for 15 years.  I started my career as a probation agent with SCDPPPs.  Then I went to work as a patrol officer with the Pamplico PD then the Florence County Sheriff’s Office.  I was promoted to investigator with the Florence County Sheriff’s Office and served in that capacity for four years before leaving to work as an investigator for the Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office. I finished my law enforcement career as an SRO at Florence School District Two.    

I have an A.S. in Criminal Justice from Florence Darlington Technical College and a B.S. in Psychology from Francis Marion University.  I graduated from the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy in 2001.  I have certifcations in Criminal Investigations, Interview and Interrogations, and Advanced Criminal Enforcement.
