2021 AACRAO Elections - Nominations and Elections Candidate

Over my professional career, I have always been very active in professional development and an advocate for what it can do for people personally and professionally.  I have no doubt that it is the connections to colleagues and experiences I have had from professional development opportunities that have made me the person I am today.  I started, even back as an admissions counselor, serving on the state (TnACRAO) calendar committee and have continued to pour my time into the state and regional (SACRAO) level organizations in various roles.  I recently joined the Public Policy Advisory Group for AACRAO as a way to begin to serve the national organization and I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to be considered to serve on the Nominations & Elections Committee as I want to become more involved with AACRAO. 

As someone who has served in a wide variety of roles at various levels, I understand the importance of a wide range of experience when looking to develop a strong slate for AACRAO and what an important task this would be.  It is through these experiences that I think I would be able to accomplish my goal of serving the Nominations & Elections Committee well by helping to develop a slate that would, in turn, serve the AACRAO organization well and provide the membership with a diverse and experienced ballot for selection of their next Board of Directors.  If selected for this role, I would utilize my previous experience mentioned earlier to accomplish this goal and serve AACRAO and the Nominations and Elections Committee to the best of my ability.
