Deception State Park


I started my career with Washington State in 1990 with the Washington State Patrol.  I worked as a Washington State Trooper in King County then Whatcom County.  In 2004, I was promoted to Sergeant, serving in Skagit County and Whatcom County.  In 2010, I was promoted to Lieutenant, serving in the Tri-Cities area and then finishing my career with the Washington State Patrol in 2015 supervising Skagit, Island, and Whatcom County.  From 2015 through 2017, I served as a Community Corrections Supervisor in Whatcom County with the Washington State Department of Corrections.  In 2017, I was hired by the Washington State Parks & Recreation Commission as the Area Manager for Deception Pass State Park.  Deception Pass State Park is the busiest park in the state with just over 3 million visitors a year and is the seventh largest park geographically. 

I have a Bachelors Degree in Sociology and a Masters Degree in Criminology. 

I have been married for 31 years, live full time in Deception Pass State Park, and have a 27 year old son that is a Certified Athletic Trainer for the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.
