I am a higher education executive and organizational administrator with extensive experience developing and overseeing academic programs, and initiatives to promote student growth and achievement. This includes serving students across multiple schools as well as the continuous improvement of curricula. In my career, I have led a startup institute in achieving AACSB accreditation, designed and implementing school policies, academic programs and student service, revived student recruitment, and raised large amounts of funding and resources. The key to my success is an engaging style, attention to detail, a commitment to sharing knowledge and an awareness of what makes an organization tick. This has been crucial in achieving consensus and collaboration. I can bring this approach to your team. Please connect with me if you are seeking a passionate education advocate who can develop your institution to maximize results and building top-performing teams wholly committed to the academic success of each student. My specialites include: Professional Development, Student Recruitment, Curricula & Operational Improvements, Staffing & Organizational Development, Business Journalism & Editing, Policy Design & Implementation, Accreditation Expertise, New School Startup, Community Outreach, Faculty & Staff Engagement
