Forensic Scientist

New York State Police



I am a forensic scientist with a strong background in analytical chemistry, which led me to be assigned to the Seized Drugs section of the crime lab. After three years of analyzing countless items in criminal casework for the presence of controlled substances and testifying as needed, I was promoted to an administrative role in the Quality Assurance office. Since then I've gained a global perspective of laboratory system operations, which I've leveraged to create new programs pertaining to learning and development, community outreach, and organization health and wellness. I thrive on empowering others to learn, grow, create, and lead while honoring their own unique journey.
