Campus Safety Officer

Day Job:
I actively participate in the university's efforts of providing a safe and secure environment for students, staff and visitors of Auburn. My various positions/duties include: Perform security and vulnerability assessments, Threat Assessment Team leader, self defense instructor (RAD), and personal security details for university and athletic events.

Favorite Auburn Experience:
I have many favorite Auburn experiences over the years while providing security to Auburn presidents, coaches, players and their families. I have been blessed to meet some wonderful people who left a mark on my life. I started out doing a job, and somewhere along the way they became family. Iron Bowl 2010 and the National Championship are probably two of my favorite moments by far. Reading history is fascination, but to witness history is awe-inspiring.

My greatest inspiration is my family. As I watch them grow and develop, I am proud that I am able to contribute in their maturation process. Nothing I give them compares to what they knowingly and unknowingly give to me. Life has not been without loss or failures, but their resiliency has been exceptional.
