I began teaching online as an adjunct instructor in January of 2007 in which I taught criminal justice, law, and business courses. I began my legal career as a paralegal for a private law firm in which I participated in both civil and criminal cases, and then served as a victim advocate for the Denver District Attorney's Office. Following, I worked for the Colorado Bureau of Investigation as a Criminal Data Specialist. Moreover, I worked in fraud detection, conflict negations, office administration, and overall business management. Much of my experience was gained in the private sector as the president of a business corporation in which I wrote the bylaws, all procedural manuals, and managed and trained all personnel. Subsequently, I begin working at a private law firm after law school specializing in the areas of corporate and business law. Thereafter, I transitioned into the role of the Associate Program Chair for Criminal Justice online in which I actively took part on committees, took part in enhancing our content curriculum, and took part in assisting our team in all administrative tasks. Finally, I was hired on as a Dean for Online learning and supervised the Criminal Justice, Paralegal, Business, and Web Design programs.
In the field of criminal justice and law I have acquired additional certifications in areas such as Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation. Also, I have been certified as a paralegal. In addition, I was trained to conduct legal research in various databases such as LexisNexis, FindLaw, and Versus Law, Hein-On-Line, and received certification from Westlaw. I have been thoroughly trained to research in ICON, CCIC, and NCIC databases, and have passed all required tests for use of these systems. For example, a comprehensive investigation was conducted, a polygraph examination was performed, terminology and laws frequently used within these databases was tested to determine proper application when provided a variety of different variable circumstances and adhering to the strict guidelines and protocol required by Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Furthermore, I was granted security clearance within the bureau after all requirements were met.
