A wife, mother of three, executive administrator, teacher, author, community leader, licensed mental health counselor, and Gallup certified strengths coach with nearly 30 years of diverse, progressively responsible experience in a wide variety of settings within the field of Higher Education. My work is characterized by the creation of innovative programs and learning experiences that exceed metrics while also helping others realize how to maximize their unique talents and potential within the scope of the common ground we share. My “Top Five” are: WOO, Communication, Positivity, Connectedness, and Strategic. Some say “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink,” but I use my top five to say, it’s my job to make the horses thirsty.
