I was born in Ohio, grew up in Arizona, but did live a few years in Washington in the early 1980’s, then I came back to Arizona where I have lived since. In my early 20’s, while I worked my way through college, I worked as a “rod-buster” installing rebar (concrete reinforcement steel) in the construction field. In 1992, I began my career with the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry as a Correctional Officer, promoted through the ranks of Sergeant, Lieutenant, Correctional Officer III, Correctional Officer IV, Associate Deputy Warden, and Deputy Warden. I then went to work in the ADCRR Inspector General’s Office as the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Coordinator. I am a Certified U.S. Department of Justice PREA Auditor. In 2017, I started my career with ACI. I have a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from Arizona State University and have earned my Public Manager Certificate from Arizona State University.

There are many such examples I can think of where inmates surprised me with their ability to quickly learn new skills, but many inmates would not be able to showcase their skills and abilities without having the ACI program to prove themselves to the employers in the first place. ACI labor contract employers learn that the inmates can be successful and do the job while they are incarcerated and continue to employ former inmates upon their release from ADCRR. One example of an inmate’s success is one who worked for an ACI labor contract with a dairy. The inmate learned the routine of the dairy of milking cows, and later of all the maintenance upkeep of the machinery and equipment at the dairy. Upon his release, not only did the dairy management continue his employment, but provided housing for him near the dairy as well.

I find it very satisfying to be part of the ACI team, all working hard to achieve the program success of reducing inmate recidivism. But what I find most satisfying is meeting with former inmates after their release and they thank me for ACI and how ACI changed their lives for the better as they continue their careers with the labor contract partners and build their lives with their family and new homes.

On my last vacation I took a trip to Sedona AZ.
