I am a professor in the Criminal Justice Department.  I have always enjoyed school and learning from a young age.  In college, I studied abroad my junior year in Montpellier, France at l'Université Paul Valéry, which was of the most educational experiences of my life.  I worked for 5 years after college, and was drawn to law school.  During law school, I volunteered and worked in various places to help me decide my career path.  I recommend all students work/volunteer in as many places as you can to help you decide the work you would like to do.  Since 2000, I have worked in the criminal justice field, specializing in litigation, criminal law, juveniles, and domestic violence.
