How do I measure my impact on higher education? 

  • Witnessing the career success and growth of the numerous higher education professionals I have trained, coached, and mentored over the years.

  • Through building true teams that continue to thrive long after I have moved onto another project.

  • Seeing students, whom I have impacted, graduate and use their education to truly change their lives. 

  • Developing and Implementing processes and systems that positively impact the overall experience of the staff and students. Measured by increased student success as well as staff and student satisfaction.

What excites or concerns me about higher education? 

I'm excited to know that education continues to change and evolve to meet the needs of our transforming world, and I am excited to help schools maximize their potential which allows them to focus on the changing needs of their students.

I'm concerned any time I work with a school that is not properly leveraging their systems to handle the day to day details of a higher education institution, utilizing precious time that should be focused on really knowing and meeting the needs of their students.  In today’s day and age, a school’s systems need to handle the daily, weekly, monthly and annual details and reminders; allowing school personnel the time to form positive productive relationships with their students. 


Name a few of your other passions or hobbies?

I enjoy spending time at the beach, walking, swimming, collecting shells and just enjoying the views, but my passion is my family.  Even though we may be spread out across the country, nothing lights up my life like them.
