Interested students attended the Criminology Career Panel on Friday, March 24, at the Claude Pepper Center's Broad Auditorium.
The event, hosted by the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice, was moderated by the College's Internship Director, Jessica Webber, and featured five panelists:
Christina Ash, Chief Probation Officer - Circuit 2 Florida Department of Juvenile Justice
Kevin Goehrig, Victims Services Supervisor - Florida Commission on Offender Review
Jessica Pfohl, Crime Intelligence Analyst Supervisor - Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
Jahnee Todman, Leon County Court Division Chief - Law Offices of Jessica J. Yeary, Public Defender
Sara Uribe, Criminal Defense Investigator & Internship Coordinator - Law Offices of Jessica J. Yeary, Public Defender
Panelists began the event by telling the audience about themselves, their daily work, and why their work is vital to their agency or office.
After the introductory statements, the panelist answered questions from the audience and ones submitted online. Students showed interest in knowing what specific skills the panelists find beneficial to their work and the challenges they face in their profession.
Jessica Webber added, "Our students were very engaged, and I think our agency partners did a great job of highlighting both the triumphs and challenges of their careers in a way that our students appreciated. Thanks to our panelists, as Criminology students look to their future careers and internship opportunities, I think they will be much better prepared to choose where they would like to be."
