I was born in Houston, Texas and am the older of two children. In 2008 I graduated from J Frank Dobie High School in Houston, Tx. While in high school I had my first ride along with Sgt. Steve Guerra with the Houston Police Department and I knew after that I wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement. After high school I attended San Jacinto College to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice.
Words of encouragement from my dad and aunt, who works for City of Pasadena Marshals Office, who sparked my enthusiasm to honor and protect our citizens. I completed the basic peace officer law enforcement academy at the University of Houston downtown in August 2011 and began my law enforcement career in 2012 with the UT System Police at the UT Health Northeast Campus in Tyler, Texas. I am learning as much as I can and am working to become a Field Training officer within the organization teaching future cadets and continuing my education working to obtain my intermediate certificate.
My hobbies include going to the shooting range with my dad, movie nights and spending quality time with family. I am extremely passionate about my job and honored to be part of the UT System Police and the UT Health Northeast Police Dept.
