I have been very fortunate to have been hired at the KCSO and have worked my whole adult life here. I consider the department to be family, because family is what the Sheriff’s Office is to me!
I get to work with the elderly and children in our community! I truly love every job that I’ve ever worked here! It’s not only given me a career but pride in what I do!
I had always wanted a career in law enforcement. During my final year at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, I applied for a civilian position in the Support Services Unit of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office as I wanted to gain some local experience, with the ultimate goal being federal law enforcement. After over 20 years, I am still here. I saw very quickly that KCSO was a premier law enforcement agency, having the resources and tools many agencies cannot afford. After a couple of years, I attended the KCSO Training Academy becoming a certified law enforcement officer. Also, as a lifelong Knox County resident, I have felt a great amount of pride working to keep my hometown safe.
I joined the Knox County Sheriff’s Office in 2015 and it’s the best move I’ve made in my professional career. This organization is headed in right direction for the community and its employees. It’s refreshing to work with a team where everyone is on the same page and in pursuit of a common goal. This is a very engaging place to work. We’re constantly busy and always looking for new talent to join the team.
