Supervisory Special Agent
Birmingham Field Office
I joined the FBI in 2004. I was assigned to the Memphis Field Office in 2005 and later transferred to the Washington Field Office. I worked as a supervisory special agent within the Cyber Division at FBI Headquarters and then transferred to the Birmingham Field Office in 2019.
In Birmingham, I have worked as a Joint Terrorism Task Force coordinator, and I am now the supervisory special agent of the Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force and the North Alabama Safe Streets Task Force.
What drew you to the FBI?
I began my law enforcement career working for the South Georgia Drug Task Force in 2000. I worked undercover for a short period of time before I joined the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) in 2001. While I thoroughly enjoyed my work with the GBI, I felt I needed to do my best to continue to help and protect communities on a larger scale and to hopefully make a greater impact.
I felt the FBI is where I belonged. I love my job, and after all these years, I continue to be passionate about the great work we all do in law enforcement. I truly believe we are a team, and, more importantly, we are a family. We work together, no matter what time of day or day of the week, to ensure our communities remain safe
What is the best career or life advice you have to give?
Everything that we do as special agents in the FBI is worth it. No matter the amount of time or the resources agents expend, if we prevent one adult or child from being victimized, it’s worth it. We positively impact our communities and make them a safer place.
This is why, we, as law enforcement, are better together than apart. I consider our local, state, and federal partners a resource to everyone within the FBI. We can’t do this alone, and we need to rely on our partners who know the people in our communities to combat crime.
