Services to the Community

My interests are in how people create their own POWER in the workforce and what they do with that power once it is attained.  I hope to continue research in these areas once I am accepted as a professor at Savannah State University.  I also plan to research the benefit of multi-agency cooperation and partnership in Emergency Planning for local communities with limited resources.
