Why Did You Become a Criminal Justice Professor:
After serving over 20 years as a juvenile justice practitioner, it was time to leave the field and complete my graduate degrees.  Becoming a criminal justice professor allowed me to bring my experience into the classroom and connect with future practitioners in a very meaningful way.
