Undergraduate Alumni Spotlight
My name is Jamie Fallowfield. I graduated from my undergrad in December 2017, and from my Masters in Criminal Justice in 2020. I majored in Criminal Justice and minored in Forensic Psychology.
My upbringing was less than typical, and I had to deal with a lot of hardship. This pushed me to want to help others. I quickly felt like law enforcement was the way to go. When I studied at WOU, I contemplated which area I wanted to be in, rather than be in corrections, policing, etc. I spent my years at WOU trying to learn about all areas of criminal justice, to find my niche. During my time at WOU, an alumni student who is an FBI employee came and spoke to our class about the FBI honors internship. I had always dreamed of working for the FBI, mostly because I loved the show Criminal Minds, so I applied. Months later I found out I was a conditional candidate. The condition was, I had to pass the background check, including polygraph. Little did I know this would turn into my career.
