Forensic Science

Age: 19

Hometown: Oregon, IL

Current Residence: Menasha, WI
Attended FVTC: August 2012 through December 2014


Why did you choose the Forensic Science Program?
I chose the Forensics program because I really love science. I have always known that I wanted a career that involved science and/or math. I ended up choosing Forensic Science because it not only has math and science, but I also get to solve crimes that help families cope with their loss and put away criminals who have caused pain.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

I love learning about the different ways to get a fingerprint. It’s not just dusting anymore. We can get fingerprints off of almost anything by dusting, using polyethylene glycol, and other methods. Polyethylene glycol, or PEG, is my favorite. It’s basically liquid putty that forms to the surface the fingerprint is on, like a rock, and then hardens within 5-10 minutes. Once it has dried, we can just peel the mold off and an imprint of the fingerprint is on the PEG! It’s very fun to do!

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
I chose Fox Valley Technical College because of its great reputation; the Criminal Justice program is one of the best in the state. I also like the smaller class sizes, and the statistics on employment after graduating are really strong. That’s why I came here all the way from Illinois.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
I really want to work in a state crime lab someday. It would be fun to do on-scene work, but I love science too much to NOT be in a lab. I would like to move to Boston, MA or Knoxville, TN after my education to find a job because there are more opportunities in a bigger city.
