Background

Summary

I believe strongly in the ideal of servant leadership. People who work in the public and non-profit sectors should never feel entitlement. It is a privilege to serve the people and the causes you represent. I have a very strong work ethic and am a task oriented individual. I very much enjoy creating ways to make visions come to fruition.

Specialties:extensive oral and written communication, organizational leadership and problem solving skills and experience; local government/citizen relations and liaison; private-public partnerships in education, teacher recognitions, and childhood literacy.
