I retired in 2021 after serving nearly 25 years as a federal criminal investigator. As a Special Agent, I conducted diverse investigations involving government corruption, contract fraud, health care fraud, counterintelligence matters, and protective security operations. I am a certified adjunct instructor for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), and regularly teach search warrant affidavit and report writing classes for the federal Inspector General Academy. Additionally, I present effective report writing techniques and case studies at government and industry conferences.
Prior to becoming a criminal investigator, I taught English composition at the university level.
I have received multiple awards, including the Agent of the Year award in 2013 and the regional Agent of the Year award in 2007. I was the lead investigator on a major public corruption case that received the Significant Fraud Case award from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) in 2017. I received an Award for Excellence in 2012 from the Council for the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) for my work on a case involving defective battlefield munitions, and I received the adjunct instructor of the year award in 2017 from the CIGIE Criminal Investigator Academy.
