Outside of work I have a passion for coaching youth sports. For over 10 years now, I have been coaching football and basketball. Not only do I benefit from watching youth grow in a sport and learn valuable life skills, I learn from coaching. I see how different types of communication reach people, not just youth. I have been able to use my coaching skills in the workplace when instructing classes for the Nampa Police Department. I often get the opportunity to share with new officers and dispatchers about an unfortunate event I was involved in while working at the Sheriff’s Office. This again not only helps me work through that incident, I believe it helps new law enforcement personal prepare for when they encounter an incident like that.
