1980 graduate of the Pennsylvania State University with a bachelor's degree in Administration of Justice.

2000 graduate of Robert Morris University with a master's degree in Taxation.



Following a career change that led to 10 years in the world of public accounting, I am returning to the field of Loss Prevention where my passion remains high. I previously enjoyed an eighteen year career working for various major retailers and security firms in western Pennsylvania & eastern Ohio. With me, what you get is 1) someone who’s not flashy, but gets results, 2) a veteran with experience in all areas of Loss Prevention, and 3) someone who values integrity, is dedicated to the job at hand and is determined to get results.  It’s that experience, knowledge and passion that I now want to pass on in teaching and training others. And getting a bird’s eye view of the other side of the business world (the tax/accounting side) helps me immensely in my understanding of retailers needs as they balance the realities of Loss Prevention concerns versus budgetary constraints and limitations.
