Criminal Law, Juvenile Justice Law and Policy, Corrections


I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and minor in Criminal Justice from Temple University and my Juris Doctor from Widener University School of Law and have taught Criminal Justice at both institutions. Beginning as a student at Temple University I began to work directly with criminal and juvenile offenders in various capacities and subsequently spent several years working primarily with juvenile offenders at the Public Defender’s Office. My interest in legal research and writing led to my work with the Delaware State Court System, where I spent two years working for the State Family Court. Since 2008, I have been teaching at Temple and have an open-door policy for all past and present students working to help them gain success in their academics and professional endeavors.
