Summary

My career has been invested in entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial environments from my earliest business experiences.  I thrive, and contribute most, in new ventures that require me to "wear many hats", balance competing needs and where I can create an environment that enables others to realize their greatest potential.  Creating and communicating a vision, as part of a team working towards common goals provides me with tremendous satisfaction.

Executive Summary

Possessing an entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for building capacity in others in order for them, and their organizations, to realize their potential, I have demonstrated leadership in all aspects of campus operations.  I recognize that institutions do not exist separate from the people they serve or the people who serve them and that every organization is a unique and organic enterprise.  A clear and compelling vision, effectively communicated and nurtured, can only be achieved through leadership that values all stakeholders, and recognizes their needs, while having a laser focus on the mission.
