I have been a private investigator since I joined the Diligentia Group in January 2018, after over 15 years working in the construction industry.
For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be in law enforcement. I come from a family of police officers, I always just assumed that I would wind up one too. Yet as we all learn in life, things don’t always turn out as you wanted, hoped, or even thought they would.
Before I knew it, I was in my late twenties and working in an office job for a company in the construction industry. I resigned myself to the 9 to 5 office life, and had even advanced as far as supervisor, before unforeseen circumstances left me at age 41 and without a job.
Seizing the opportunity to finally chase my passion, yet understanding that becoming a police officer was a dream that had passed me by, I turned to an old friend for advice on how to break into the private investigation field. Not only did he give me the advice I was looking for, he decided to take a gamble on a rookie, and brought me on to his firm.
Now I actually look forward to coming into work every day to see what new challenges and opportunities to learn await me.
The phrase “you learn something new every day” doesn’t even begin to cover the last few years of my life.
This job has been a constant learning process, and the most exciting and fulfilling thing I have ever been lucky enough to do with my life.
