Dean of Innovative Learning

I truly love what I do and feel very fortunate to work with many incredible and talented faculty, staff, students and community partners, each and every day. I have over 25 years of progressive professional experience in education administration with 13 years of academic leadership at Northwood Tech, serving both in my current role, and previously as the Dean of Instructional Operations for the Business Division at the Superior Campus. I am also a John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management-UCLA Head Start Johnson & Johnson Fellow.

My educational philosophy and passion for education has always been in keeping with the mission of the technical college, and I am an advocate of promoting access to experiential, meaningful and quality education for all.
