I am the Manager of the DV Unit at the Division of Criminal Justice (DCJ) and the Program Director for the Colorado Domestic Violence Offender Management Board (DVOMB). I have a Master’s degree in Counseling and am a licensed psychotherapist in Colorado. I co-founded and have been the chair of the Domestic Violence and Sexual Offense Crossover Committee for the past seven years. My experience with victim services and advocacy issues, offender treatment, management, and containment issues is extensive, and includes providing training on these topics at the local, state, and national level. I became involved with DOVE a few years ago when a friend of mine was organizing the Annual Benefit Dinner and I decided to help as a volunteer. I quickly joined in the enthusiasm that others have for this important work. I have been a Board member for about two year, and chair the Governance Committee for DOVE.
