I work for the Department of Probation in NYC. My job title is Probation Officer. I am a change agent for youth at risk. I supervise and assist them with the life tools needed to refrain from recidivism. My goal is to minimize the incarceration of our young people and guide them to become productive citizens of society and reach their full potential. This type of field allows me to utilize my creative ideas to reach this vulnerable population.
