Registrar, Pomona College

On why she joined the Black and Women's Caucuses: "I have worked in Higher Education for sixteen years. I began my career in Higher Education working on the front-line, processing applications for admission and maintaining student records. I am now an integral part of the Registrar team, where I focus on student degree progress and completion, and the interpretation and application of institute policy and procedure. I have gained the ability to think strategically when faced with any given scenario and the capability to work with and lead a team.

My educational and professional experience has made me a data-driven, strategic, visionary, and future oriented leader. I have the unique skills of being proficient in the use of various computer software; extensive knowledge of statistical research, analysis, and interpretation; program evaluation and assessment; internal and external institutional reporting; policy and planning functions within postsecondary education; state, federal, and accrediting regulations; and demonstrate knowledge, and understanding of the diverse academic, socioeconomic, sex, gender identity, cultural, disability, and ethnic backgrounds of the students I serve.

My plan is to continue the advancement of my career as a Higher Education Administrator, by utilizing the skills, knowledge, and passion I have to stimulate personal and group excellence. This will be facilitated by my willingness to learn and continuously improve. I look forward to assisting the advancement of the mission and vision of AACRAO's Black Caucus and Women's Caucus."
