Greg worked for Oregon state corrections nearly his entire adult life after graduating from Oregon State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. He started his career at the Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP) as an academic counselor, and then served as OSP’s Staff Training Coordinator for eleven years. He worked as a department-level new employee and in-service instructor until he was selected to be the department’s Leadership Program Manager, and then Staff Training/Professional Development Administrator. He was the Oregon Department of Corrections’s Labor Relations Administrator until retirement in 2009. He developed and was lead author of The Six Moving Parts Model of Correctional Employee Training Effectiveness, a research-based system that describes the crucial mechanisms that agencies must implement in order to ensure efficient and effective use of staff training resources, published by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC)/U.S. Department of Justice. Greg has spoken at numerous conferences and training sessions around the country, has instructed at the university and community college levels, and has taught parenting classes for prison inmates. He holds a Master of Science degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, concentrating on the personal and professional consequences of work-related trauma and chronic stress, and the rapidly expanding field of human neuroscience. His concern for the health and skills of the corrections workforce has been his motivation throughout his career.
