I feel honored to be nominated for this position. Nominations and Elections is a key committee within AACRAO and many other associations, as it determines and ensures the next cadre of leaders will move the association forward. My entire 27-year career has been in higher education. I have had the pleasure to work under, with, and alongside many colleagues over the years, who have provided mentorship and friendship to me. My involvement and continued support of associations like AACRAO gives me the opportunity to pay it forward. My goal, should I be elected, would be to put forth the best leaders of our profession to continue advancing this great association, AACRAO. Thank you.
