Why Law Enforcement Law enforcement has always been something I wanted to do. When I was younger I let myself get talked out of going after that dream but it was always still in my heart and something I knew I wanted to do. The opportunity presented itself when I was older and I went for it. I went after my dream and showed my children it is never too late to go after what you want and I am loving every minute of this awesome ride.
First Arrest My first arrest is rather entertaining. It was my second day of FTO and I had responded to a theft call of a male stealing gas from a gas can that was outside of someone’s house. After getting all the statements it was time to handcuff and take this guy to jail. I go to put the cuffs on and end up dropping them on the ground with many of my other squad mates watching me as I fumbled around. Everything ended up fine but what a way to make a first impression!
Best part of the job Every day is different. You never know what the day will bring from arresting the bad guy or girl to receiving a hug from a parent who is so thankful that you found their child.  
Hobbies Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my kids, working out, running, hiking, riding my dirt bike, horseback riding…..pretty much anything outside.

Why Law Enforcement I have inexplicably wanted to be involved in law enforcement since as long as I can remember. Even playing “cops and robbers” as a child I always wanted to be the cop. I finally got more serious about it towards the end of high school and attended college in Arizona to get a degree in criminology. During my time in college, many of my instructors were officers and between what I learned from them and the criminology topics, I knew this was what I wanted to do. After college I began applying with various agencies in Arizona, but always hoped to be hired by Glendale since I grew up in this city and was lucky enough to get that opportunity.
First Arrest I actually remember my first arrest, as it came just a few days into when I was in field training. I was on a domestic violence call with my field training officer and this guy had been banging on an apartment door trying to see his girlfriend. She called because he had previous assaulted her in the day and she had even recently changed where she lived to try and get away from him. When I first interviewed him, he initially made up some story about thinking some other guy was in there causing her harm and that he was just there to help her. After seeing an injury to her face and questioning him about it, he actually admitted to punching her in the face while they were driving in a car together. as I asked him why he would do that to his girlfriend he said “she just wouldn’t shut her mouth, so I just punched her in the face to shut her up”.I was absolutely stunned by that statement from him and couldn’t believe it just occurred like that. needless to say, he went to jail.
Best part of the job The best part about my job is that it never feels like work to me. It’s definitely not always easy and plenty of things can be frustrating, but I enjoy it overall so much that I kind of forget that it’s “work”.It’s something different every single day and you never know what you’re going to face. To me it’s just living life and trying to help someone each day as well as holding people accountable for their conduct and keeping dangerous people away from good citizens in society.
Hobbies
Favorite Quote “These aren’t my pants”.As I entered into law enforcement, I always heard that as the classic phrase and officers always talk about it like it happens often. It’s difficult to believe until you actually start experiencing it and see how common it is. I laughed out loud the first time a suspect said that phrase to me and it’s crazy how often they’ll say they put on another person’s pair of pants and never noticed what was in the pockets… even when their own stuff is in that same pocket.This general concept even applies to all sorts of similar things like finding drugs in someone’s purse and it’s always in a “friends” container that they inexplicably happened to put in their purse with the rest of their stuff that day.
