Additional Information 

“As a former student and Criminal Justice major at Northeastern, I can identify with students who have to ‘burn the candle at both ends,’ so to speak.  I often tell students at the beginning of each semester that the most important part of my resume is the fact that I once sat in the same seat at this university and traveled the same path.  I believe that it is important to give students, who are quite often juggling a full-time job with full-time studies, a lively and thought-provoking educational experience that is fun, upbeat, and grounded in experiential reality.”
