Teri Stockham grew up in the era before true crime shows were mainstream, but her love for Nancy Drew books and mystery stories made for a natural interest in forensic science. Luckily, he father not only fostered that interest but also helped her connect with Indiana State University and its forensic chemistry specialty. Stockham served as chief toxicologist in Broward County for six years before starting her own consulting business in 1997, which allows her to serve as an expert witness and full-time consultant doing military court martials, civil and criminal cases. Stockham doesn’t take her fruitful career for granted and now serves as a role model for Sycamores and an example of what a bachelor’s degree from Indiana State can offer students.
