Dean of Enrollment Management at Parkland College

I currently serve as the Dean of Enrollment Management at Parkand College, a community college in east-central Illinois.  At Parkland, I have focused on process improvement and identifying key leaders within my area to help accomplish goals.  Previously, I spent 13 years in the Undergraduate Admissions office at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where I held a variety of positions, but most recently working with transfer students, transfer recruitment, and assisting the Director of Operations with day to day work within the unit, as well as strategic process improvement.  I served on the Executive Board for Illinois AACRAO for a total of four years, once as a District Chair and the other three years as President-Elect, President, and Past President.   I find great value in building relationships with colleagues at other institutions, and AACRAO has a very active membership that is willing to help one another, in any situation.   I have been a member of AACRAO since 2014.
