My career in law enforcement began with the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office when I was hired as a correctional officer in 1994.  Now in my 28th year of service to the citizens of our county, I have worked my way through your Sheriff’s Office and its ranks – serving, supervising and collaborating with every division in the agency. I have held a command level position for over a dozen years.

I have not taken the decision to run for your Sheriff lightly.  I realize the tremendous responsibility of this endeavor. At its core, the decision was motivated by my passion to lead, and my continuing call to serve the community I love.
