My name is Lindsay and I am a grad student in the Criminal Justice program here at UWF-Emerald Coast. I received my undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice at UWF as well. Currently I am a Communications Officer, better known as a dispatcher, with the local police department. I hope to work as a crime scene investigator when I graduate and then maybe, if I miss school too much, I will go back and get another degree in English Literature. When I am not working or in school, I am watching TV, reading, listening to music, or at the beach. I have really enjoyed my time at UWF-Emerald Coast, especially the people I have made friends with. I look forward to welcoming new members to CJSO and if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.
I am a Criminal Justice major at the Emerald Coast location. I am hoping to graduate early at the end of the fall semester of 2012. I am 24, and I am originally from southern Indiana where I studied American Sign Language Interpreting English at Vincennes University in Indianapolis, IN. My husband is in the USAF. I spent three years in the Shreveport/ Bossier City, Louisiana area and received my AA in Criminal Justice with a focus in medico-legal death investigation at Bossier Parish Community College in Bossier City, LA. He was stationed at Barksdale AFB and now we have recently moved to the Navarre Beach area because he is currently stationed at Hurlburt Field AFB. My career goal, after graduating, is to work in the medico-legal death investigations field. I am excited about the new things that the CJSO is organizing. If you have any questions about the CJSO please feel free to contact me. I hope to see you at the next meeting!
Hello, my name is Katie and I am the secretary for CJSO. This is my last semester for my Bachelors in Criminal Justice. Currently I am interning at the Department of Juvenile Justice in Fort Walton Beach. For the most part I'm from Maryland, but have lived in Texas and was born in England. I hope to start my graduate's degree this fall in social work. I find trying to help youth is very rewarding because you have the ability to help change the future. School, work and an internship can be overwhelming, but we all can do it and trust me, you'll be happy in the long run! So stay positive, stay involved and stay yourself because just visiting this site shows you want more with your college experience. Thank you to active and future CJSO members!!
I am a double-major student in Criminal Justice and Psychology at UWF and hope to graduate fall 2010. I am 20 years old and work part time as a Loss Prevention Associate for Sears in Mary Esther. I was born and raised in California, and moved to Florida in 2005. I think I would go crazy if I didn't go to school, therefore I plan on attending school for as long as I can. My long-term goal is to work for the FBI in the Behavior Analysis Unit. A little bit more about me, my favorite color is green and I like the cartoon character Scooby Doo. I look forward to all upcoming activities that involve new and active members of the CJSO. If you have any suggestions or questions about anything, don't be afraid to contact me.
