"I love making a difference in kids’ lives. My mission is to educate and make students aware of various topics such as drug awareness, bullying, peer pressure, expectations in school and beyond, and stranger danger (just to name a few). It’s important to me to keep our students and staff safe by being proactive and keeping our schools drug-free. I love having a K9 partner. It’s a bond most people will never understand and cannot acquire in any other position or job.

 

In addition to K9 Paco, my retired partner K9 Emmy lives at home with me and my family. Emmy served in our Department for 10 years. I worked with Emmy for 8 years and when she retired, I definitely wanted to be sure she spent the rest of her years as a permanent member of my family.

 

K9 Paco has proven himself to be one of the best in the business. He placed 7th out of 93 Narcotic Detector K9's in the 2018 National Narcotic Detector Dogs Association Narcotic Competition."
