    BA Psychology, 2010
  • Personal Statement
    Although I achieved my Associates and Bachelor’s degrees in Chemistry back in 1994, I have always had a strong interest in the field of Psychology. Over the years, my interests have become more fine-tuned towards the field of Criminal Psychology.
    Having watched shows like “The New Detectives” and “Most Evil”, I have found myself increasingly fascinated by human motivations and what biological or psychological aspects contributed to different kinds of criminal behavior.
    I plan on developing a Field Profiling computer program that will assist law enforcement and help investigators draw more informed conclusions. I believe that my training in the Sciences and IT Technology can bring unique perspective to the field of Criminal Psychology.

  • My Future in Learning
    I would eventually like to achieve credentials (PhD) for the ability to design and conduct research and write authoritative papers about topics I am passionate about (PTSD). I have a strong interest in Forensic Psychology and can see myself writing about my discoveries or the development of new insights that lead to a better understanding about the human mind. I would also like to get practical experience in counseling youth and adults (community outreach) and hope one day to teach what I have learned in my area of specialty.
    I would also like to interview incarcerated criminals and study case files to gain more insight into criminal motivation. I have this idea of eventually developing a “20 questions” style program that asks for details about a case and directs or enlightens law enforcement towards apprehension. Using my experience with enterprise applications, I would like this program to contain my personal insights but also be customizable so that persons with a particular level of expertise can integrate their knowledge into the program.
