  • What were you assigned to prior to your role as an SRO? I was assigned to patrol prior to this. I am a Field Training Officer, as well as an Active Shooter Instructor for the Shakopee Police Department.
  • What was your favorite memory of middle school or school in general? I do not have a single favorite memory - but my memories all stem from my time with friends.
  • What’s one statement of encouragement that you have for middle school students?  If you make a mistake, learn from it and move forward in a positive way. We will all make mistakes, but how we move forward after them determines who you are, not the mistake.
