I fought fear for over a year making what one might call a surprising life change. It is scary to be thirty-eight, a parent of four, swamped with responsibilities, and decide to go back to school. Not only to go to school but to also make the overwhelming career change that I’ve decided to pursue.
In 2011 I was touched deeply by the issue of human trafficking. I have volunteered over the last two years with a non-profit organization that builds homes for girls rescued out of sex trafficking. I have continually been pulled to do more, and with much prayer and courage I have taken the necessary steps to become a police officer. This is an old passion coming to life for me, and one that I know I can use to continue my advocacy.
Although I am an older woman making a sharp right turn, I can still fight for a better world. A better community. A better life for my children. There is a need for peace officers that are compassionate and have high integrity in every situation.
I want to inspire hope not only in those I serve but for all I come across in all aspects of my life. I want people to see that no matter where you are in life, it is never too late to make change, Inspire hope, and make a difference for other people.
