Okay, so I need to update this thing!
I am a 23 year old female who currently resides in Houston, TX (one of the most beautiful cities in the world, in my opinion). I have spent most of my childhood here, moving here when I was about 6 or 7.
I am a graduate student at the University of Texas at Dallas currently working on my masters degree in criminology. Although I stay in campus dorms during the school year, I always go home for the holidays and breaks. My undergraduate career was in psychology. I have half a mind to finish a PhD but it's not for certain as of yet. My research interests include serial murder, criminal investigation, homicide, decision patterns of burglar/robbers, the criminal mind, techniques of neutralization, turning points, predictive policing and police corruption. After I get out of school, I plan to go into law enforcement, which has been a dream of mine since childhood. My parents claim my grandfather, who made it to captain in his own police department, gave me his genes.
My initial goal is to go into federal law enforcement, whether it be FBI, DEA or ATF. My top goal is to work for the Behavioral Science Unit with the FBI. If for some reason I do not make it (highly competitive!) I plan to get my Texas Peace Officer Certification and go work with my county's sheriff's office. Being a police officer, whether local or federal is my dream! After getting 5-10 years of experience, I plan to re-apply with the federal agencies and if that does not work out, I plan to just continue moving up in the sheriff's office until I make it to the rank of detective. Criminal investigations fascinate me as do criminals and I would love to be the one to help put the bad guys behind bars!
Although I am incredibly busy with my graduate career and getting law enforcement experience, in my free time (what little time that is) I like to read, meet with friends, watch my TV shows and relax with family.
Favorite TV shows: Supernatural, 24, Common Law (shame on USA for cancelling it!), Hannibal, The Following, The Simpsons (older episodes), The King of Queens, Everybody Loves Raymond, and any others I forgot to list!
Being as this is a fanfiction website, I also like to read some extra stories about my favorite shows and characters!
Thanks to all who read!
