Assistant Director of Admissions, Tarrant County College District

Position Statement

I look forward to the possibility of serving AACRAO as a member of the Nominations and Elections Committee.  I know that this committee has a great responsibility in service to the entire AACRAO community and I will not take that responsibility lightly if elected. 

I enjoy the collaboration and dynamics of group work.  I rarely go into any situation with my mind made up and am always interested in hearing the different approaches to a situation so that I can make a more informed decision.  If elected to the Nominations and Elections Committee, my goal will be to help select the best candidates for nomination to Association positions.  I believe my professional experience as well as my experience with and dedication to AACRAO will serve me well.
