BA Social and Criminal Justice - Forensics
A little bit about me...
Hello everyone J My name is Melanie and I am a Licensed Private Investigator. I am 41 years old and live in sunny Fort Lauderdale, FL. I have two children - Christopher (14) and Julianna (11). I am the senior investigator for a specialty finance company where I work on due diligence, default files, threat assessment and locating people or court records. This is my third year at Ashford and I absolutely love being in school and connecting with people. I have made some great friends here at Ashford and we cheer each other on thru Facebook or LinkedIn. I am studying for my BA degree in Criminal Justice with a specialization in Forensics. I am in the process of opening up my own PI Agency and wanted to get my degree so I can learn more about the big picture and not just what I am good at! I enjoy volunteering my time for different causes and have worked with a few juveniles at Wabash maximum security adult prison. One has caught my heart and I am now in the process of starting a fundraising site to raise money for his education. (State of Indiana pulled funding for college education programs). I also volunteer my time for missing children files and applied to be a volunteer with the Doe Network. I am looking forward in being a C.H.A.M.P.S. mentor and connecting with other students and mentors. I also wanted to be a good support system to other students because friends and mentors can help you overcome just about anything! If you would like to connect on Facebook or LinkedIN, you can find me by name or email address.
