Chris talks about his professional experiences and acknowledges the differences in working with male and female offenders. He promotes a shift in thinking.
In a little over 27 years of public service, I have seen many shifts in philosophy, training, and implementation. I’m excited to see the Washington State Department of Corrections continuing to innovate in the area of gender responsiveness by embracing the best research and practices so that our department remains a recognized leader in evidence-based corrections. I was born in Texas almost 57 years ago. I have traveled a lot, mostly in America. My experiences range from a fairly well-off upbringing to being homeless, more than once, to being rich now. I consider myself rich because I have a family I love and who loves me as well as a home and career I really like and take pride in. I love my pets and enjoy hobbies such as reading and woodworking with reclaimed lumber. Having had times in my life when I had almost nothing, I am all the more appreciative of what I have now.
