Ultimate Response's Lead Instructor
I enjoy using my experience as a Police Officer. Honorably retired after over 22 years service at a Chicago Suburban
Department. I have a background in the Martial Arts and served in the U. S. Navy. Was deployed overseas with a Law
Enforcement, Physical Security Unit after the events of September 11, 2001. I use my life experience to provide well
rounded personal safety training. My experience with DARE and Juvenile Services as a School Resource Officer keep the
child safety classes fun and educational.
I am a certified Personal Safety and Martial Arts Instructor. Additional, I am a NRA Firearms Instructor and a Texas LTC
Instructor. I have additional certifications through the Department of Public Safety in Texas as a Private Security
Classroom, Firearms and Personal Protection Officer Instructor. I hold both a Bachelor and Master Degree in Education. I
