Ever since he can remember, Adam Quirk has always been interested in criminal justice. He read books about it, and learned everything he could about human behavior and psychology, sociology, political science, and society in general—factors that he believes affect criminality and criminal justice.
After graduating from high school, Adam Quirk, FBI Criminal Investigation agent, went on to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Immediately after completing his undergraduate studies, Adam was hired by the U.S. Investigations Services (USIS) as a Special Investigator. This was a month after 9/11. During his time with the USIS, Adam performed thorough background checks on Air Marshal candidates; checking to see if they were fit for high-level security clearances. His in-depth investigations consistently earned him the “Top Investigator for USIS” prestige for the USIS Minneapolis Division.
Through the efforts of Adam Quirk, FBI special investigator, suitable candidates were chosen and put on flights as Air Marshals to protect the country from terrorist attacks; this, following the 9/11 attacks. After his stint with the USIS, Adam was then hired by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as a Diversion Investigator. His job entailed investigating diversions of Schedule II – V controlled substances. Together with the DEA, he identified physicians who were conducting illegal sales of prescription drugs, and subsequently prevent them from further pursuing their illegal activities.
Wanting to further expand his knowledge and expertise in the field of Criminal Justice, Adam Quirk, FBI agent, went back to school; this time, to take up his graduate studies in Criminal Justice/Criminology at Boston University.
In 2015, Adam went back to the classroom, but this time around, to study business. He has a master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, graduating at the top of his class.
It’s not all work for Adam Quirk though. Having been blessed with a fulfilling career, one that he enjoys up to this day, he knows he has a responsibility to his community as well. Adam volunteers for various non-profit organizations, especially those whose advocacies are focused on helping former prisoners re-enter society. In his own small way, he helps former prisoners find housing and employment, believing that they, just like anybody else, deserve a second chance. He hopes that through the efforts of these non-profits, they will find new meaning in their lives, and live it as an active contributor to society.
