Occupation: Police Officer, Otsego Police Department
Major: Public Service Administration
Why did you choose Siena Heights University?
"After completing the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command, I began looking for an opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree program. I missed out on a promotion earlier in my career because I lacked the required education. In looking for education opportunities I had limited success until I met Bill Heffernan, a Siena Heights University instructor. Bill recommended I look into Siena Heights University, and upon doing so, I realized immediately the university and the Public Service Administration program would be a prefect fit. Marilyn Okos, Linda Tafolla, and later Mike Rocklin, restored my faith that there are individuals who truly wish to help."
What are your plans for the future?
"My goal in seeking my bachelor’s degree is to improve my chances for advancement in my field or perhaps change focus by seeking a city management or county administrative type position."
