I am a 58 year old registered nurse, currently enlisted in furthering my education to include a psychology degree. It is my intention to focus on criminal psychology as my goal is to work with the borderline mentally challenged youth and young adults who might otherwise fall through the cracks of our justice system, ending up in jail. It is my belief that, with proper guidance, these individuals can become responsible citizens of our communities.
