Experience and Qualifications
I hold a Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice/Homeland Security Administration, with a GPA of 4.0. Most of my time in graduate school was spent writing. Each one of my professors encouraged me to submit my papers to magazines and academic journals. They insisted all of them were worthy of being published, especially my thesis.
Since 2005, I have been serving as Vice President of the New York Corporation for International Cruise Victims, Association (ICV). One of my many duties and pleasures is acting as proofreader and editor for ICV's President and cofounder, Mr. Kendall Carver. Mr. Carver doesn't release, send, or transmit in any way anything without requesting that I peruse it first. I have proofread and edited the following items for him:
-Letters and other documents to lawmakers and representatives from all over the U.S. concerning cruise ship safety legislation
-Testimonies of victims and victims' family members' to be read at Congressional and Senate hearings in Washington, D.C.
-Press releases and ICV updates that I also post to ICV's website: www.internationalcruisevictims.org
