Kody grew up in McKinleyville, California located on the Coast of Humboldt County. He was raised in a family that has deep roots in law enforcement and the community. He attended and graduated the College of the Redwoods Police academy in the top 15% of his class, and also became a nationally registered EMT in 2015.
Before coming to work at Shasta College as a Campus Safety Officer in December of 2015, Kody worked at Kohl’s Department stores in Eureka, CA as a Loss Prevention Officer. Most recently he was the Assistant Director of Mall Security at the Bayshore Mall in Eureka, CA. He has also taken a Response to Terrorism class that was held by FEMA. Additional training also includes transient / homeless relations. Kody is excited to be a part of the Campus Safety team. One of the aspects of the job that he enjoys the most is meeting the students and creating rapport with them.
