The first was Janelle Renwick, who works for Turning Point, a domestic violence shelter in Marion, Ohio. She spoke to the students about her experience as a corrections officer and how she ultimately found herself evaluating where she wanted to go in her career, and now has a job she loves working in a domestic violence shelter.
The second speaker was Dr. Reusuling from the Ashland Seminary, who spoke to the students about their graduate Master of Arts counseling program. Dr. Reusuling highlighted the connection between criminal justice and counseling, and how the students could find themselves working with the same client population, (for example, people with substance abuse issues or sex offenders).
This gave students the opportunity to hear about nontraditional options in the Criminal Justice field, while also seeing their course material come to life.
We'd like to thank Dr. Reusuling and Ms. Renwick, for sharing their time and insights with the students!
