04/2007 to 12/2012
Adjunct Instructor University Of San Francisco Sacramento, CA,
Virginia College offered a two-year degree in the field of Criminal Justice. This position was held concurrently with my position as Drug Court Coordinator with Jackson County, Mississippi. I taught two classes per night, two nights per week. I taught all Criminal Justice classes offered by the college. I instructed students using the textbook for the course and Power Point lesson plans. I also asked local professionals in the field to speak to the classes based on their areas of expertise. Field trips were also employed to give the students "real world" experiences. Virginia College terminated their Criminal Justice program but kept the instructors on long enough to allow the students to complete their studies and to obtain their degrees. Therefore, my last day was in December, 2012.

Investigator State Of Minnesota Lake Bronson, MN,

I was assigned to two (2) Assistant District Attorneys for all trial preparation. This included locating witnesses, witness interviews and serving subpoenas. I also assisted in preparing cases for Grand Juries. This position is an "at-will" position meaning when a new District Attorney is elected he/she is allowed to bring in his/her new staff for the office. When the new District Attorney was elected he brought in his own Investigators so my last day was December 31, 1999.

I was responsible for submitting the grant application each year (for continued funding) and for quarterly reports to the federal government, I developed and implemented the budget for the program.
