2021 AACRAO Elections - Nominations and Elections Candidate

Dear AACRAO Community,

I am extremely excited to have been nominated for the Nominations and Election Committee and am grateful to have the potential chance to serve AACRAO in this role.  If elected, I would honor AACRAO’s mission to support diversity, interconnectedness and advocacy in this leadership position.

I have now been in the field of higher education for twenty-one years, working at both a small liberal arts college, as well as, a brand-new medical school in the Roanoke Valley.  I have been an active AACRAO member for the past ten years.  During this time, I have participated in both the “Disciplinary Notations on Transcripts” and “State & Regional Guide Publication” workgroups. Prior to being an AACRAO member, I served my state organization, VACRAO, for several years and was elected President in 2012.  I have also been involved with my regional organization, SACRAO, for the past three years and currently serve on their Executive Committee as the Immediate Past Local Arrangement Chair.  Serving my state and regional organizations during the course of my career has brought great joy and camaraderie with my professional peers, as I fully believe that we all benefit from volunteering with organizations that provide guidance to those whom serve in the student service industry.

At Virginia Tech, our motto is “Ut Prosim - That I May Serve”, and I would be delighted to continue my service within the AACRAO community.
