About Me

I’m fortunate to have grown up within a military family (Ready to adapt to challenges & changes! Having diplomacy, discretion, integrity & respect.) and born in Holland (Being open-minded, dynamic & sometimes direct! Having a high work ethic & excellent communication). Education and making a difference are my passion. Although, I’ve held leadership positions for 10+yrs (chancellor, chair, dean, consultant), taught for 15+yrs (under/grad; public, private; small, medium campus; k-12 to college; military to civilian; even at a HBCU), involved with community service; my greatest compliment is mentoring, motivating and inspiring others as well as being inspired. Taking the impossible and making it possible/or an option! Resilience through adversity...

Recently moved to Pennsylvania (Dec 2018) from Arkansas. Due to budget cuts lost teaching job of 10yrs at the university in 2015, at which point I continued volunteer consulting while searching for a new challenge! Am willing to relocate on my own cost. Seeking opportunity teaching or executive level asap!
