Toni has been in law enforcement for over 22 years. She started her career as a patrol officer and after a few years became a juvenile detective. In the detective bureau, she investigated cases involving homicides, sex crimes and other criminal cases.
Toni was promoted to sergeant making her the first female sergeant in the history of her police department. She was totally honored and felt like this was a way to let other women know that anything is possible.
Toni’s specialty has always been to teach and provide tips to make things easier for others, but also to help them learn in the best way possible. She loves not only connecting with her community but keeping herself involved in helping them.
Toni was born and raised in the town that she is currently working in as a police sergeant. When Toni was asked what fuels her, she said that she wants to leave an imprint in the lives of young women and to give them the hope that if you can dream it, you can do it. That even though there are those days that it can be tough, and you don’t think it’s possible, to pick up the pace at this exact moment. That’s when the magic happens.
Toni wants the Wellness and learning lounge to be a safe place for First Responders to learn, grow, take a break from a hard day, and discover how to relax and take care of your mind, body and soul. A place for networking with resources available at their fingertips.
