How Arcadia Influenced My Path

My time at Arcadia was the start of my career in forensic science and set the course for everything I have done professionally since graduating. I was introduced to people, organizations, and concepts that formed the foundation of my professional life.

Greatest Achievement

My greatest professional achievement so far has been being selected as a technical leader at the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory (AFDIL). I am proud to lead a team of dedicated and accomplished forensic scientists in support of such an honorable mission.

Where I’ll Be in Five Years

I hope to continue my work at AFDIL, supporting the past accounting mission and advancing the field of forensic human identification by adopting and validating new technologies.
