I am a MPA candidate with a projected graduation in 2012. I currently have a 3.90 GPA and am a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society. I am presently enrolled in Emergency Management Policy coursework with Professor Lloyd Burton at UCD and have successfully completed training for both ICS-100 and ICS-700 in 2011. I currently work for Arapahoe County Sheriff as an Accreditation and Compliance Specialist and have worked for the county and in the criminal justice field since 2005. I possess a BS in Criminal Justice and Criminology.
I have a special interest in Emergency Preparedness, particularly for All-Hazards preparedness and outreach-planning for lower-income communities. I have conducted research on the impact of Hurricane Katrina on low-income minorities and am currently working on analysis of multiple state-policies of emergency preparedness outreach for low-income and multi-cultural communities.
