I have been working in Higher Education for over 25 years, with an abundance of experience in a wide variety of capacities. I've taught Student Success in College courses and was in charge of student evaluation of instruction; I've taught graduate courses in Educational Technology, Assessment Measures, Educational Philosophy, and Academic Research. I have extensive experience designing, developing, and delivering effective, engaging, online instruction. I was president of the Eastern Regional Competency-Based Education Consortium, and a long time proponent of competency-based education.

In my current role as Director, I provide strategic leadership for the design and implementation of the new Legacy Scholars Program. This initiative includes curriculum development of specialized for-credit programming designed to engage scholarship recipients with philanthropic development and leadership development. In support of our institution's Quality Enhancement Plan, this program engages and develops faculty members as Success Coaches, which will meet regularly with Legacy students and keep them on their established academic pathway. Additional duties include developing assessment and measurement tools to accurately collect data points to track progress, report to funders, and inform improvements.
