Why Law EnforcementLaw 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 ArrestMy 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 jobEvery 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.  
HobbiesOutside of work I enjoy spending time with my kids, working out, running, hiking, riding my dirt bike, horseback riding…..pretty much anything outside.
