After working two years as a Private Investigator with Taurus Investigations, I am now the owner and manager of Stiletto Spy and Company Investigations.
I have been a police officer for 20+ years and first served as a Reserve police officer for the City of Grand Prairie, then moved on to Everman, TX where I served as a patrol officer, and worked in various areas such as D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Officer, School Resource Officer, Gang Intelligence, Community Services, and Criminal Investigations.

I moved on to the White Settlement ISD Police Department to work as an SRO again and became Captain of the police department. I was the Emergency Management Planner and Trainer for the School District and trained all the police officers, staff and students in emergency safety procedures and plans and 1st Responder Coordination. I went to the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas to gain my Management Certificate.
I served as the Police Chief in the City of Cockrell Hill (a small city in the south west side of Dallas, TX) for four years. I have achieved a Police Instructor Certificate, Mental Health Officer Certificate and Master Peace Officer Certification. I am a mother of 5 children, three are grown and are married with children. (To date – 9 grandchildren) The last two children are still at home and are 15 and 16 years old. I served many years in the recent past on my church board and was a member of the private school board where my children attended school and headed several committees.
My most recent accomplishment was self publishing my autobiography entitled, Tragedy to Triumph - Discover the secret of gaining victory over abuse.’ I am a public speaker and educator in many Police and Christian faith topics. www.tragedytotriumphbook.com
