Simply put…”to change the world and make it a better place”.
Or more specifically, my professional mission is to humbly and compassionately challenge the status quo, encourage systems and individual change- both internal and external to the criminal justice community. And to provide human centric, highly specialized services to all human beings in need of assistance.
I have been been respectfully pushing the boundaries, asking questions, analyzing how people are treated by professionals in criminal justice, health, business, and governmental systems my entire personal and professional life. I think that there is room for improvement.
We can do better.
To assist in creating and maintaining a criminal justice system that truly keeps its promise of “justice for all“.
The system was created “by the people and for the people” and I believe, given the proper training, resources, policy guidance, systems and individual accountability – “we the people” can have a more human centric response to crime and other tragedies that impact real human beings.
I believe we can all make a significant difference in this world.
I believe it is an individual responsibility for us all to treat one another with kindness, dignity and respect.
I believe that we should all strive to assist others in their time of need.
I believe that we are responsible to ensure that we are educated with honed skills in whatever profession we choose.
I believe that we should do our best every day to make a difference towards good.
My Values and Guiding Principle:
My values are simple – authenticity, honesty, compassion and a solid work ethic.
My guiding principle is equally simple – always strive to make a positive difference in the lives of all with whom I have the honor of meeting and working with.
I appreciate the diversity of our community and do not discriminate based on political affiliation, occupation, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, sexual history, nation status or origin, race, class, age, ability, height, weight, primary language, legal history, education or HIV or other health status. My goal is to treat everyone with dignity and respect.
