For a snapshot, I am a project leader for the NewPoint Police Consulting Practice serving as an Adult Learning Strategies Consultant. My specialty is curriculum development for police/law enforcement subjects which encompasses confirming reliability and validity, transferability of knowledge from the classroom to reality, thoroughness of data collection and course presentation adhering to methods best suited to the adult learner group. The background I offer as a police officer for 25+ years includes serving in several leadership capacities and promotion through the ranks to Lieutenant. Additionally, I bring to the table uniformed and civilian experiences such as serving on hiring and promotion panels, critical incident review panels, advisory councils, monitoring settlement agreements involving police academy operations, course content review with editing, designing training and discussion on implicit bias, and Diversity-Equity-Inclusion. My career biography includes adjunct teaching as well.
My educational biography includes a Doctorate in Adult Education Leadership degree from Walden University, masters and baccalaureate degrees from Temple University, along with several instructor certifications. When invited, I serve as a Proposal Reviewer for the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education.
As a part of the International Association of Directors for Law Enforcement Standards and Training Instructor Development series, I recently presented a virtual webinar named, Creating Bias-Free Training.
I am the author of a three-part book series written under the overarching theme Social Change through Training and Education. Recently published books include, “Acknowledging the Existence of Bias Workbook and Self-Assessment” and “Linking Organizational Culture to Implicit Bias Workbook.”
