Product Manager in Information Technology

I have worked in higher education for over 10 years, holding roles in scheduling and degree audit. While learning and working in higher education, I maintained a focus on students and have gained a focus in technology by more recently accepting the position of Product Manager in Information Technology. In this new role, I assist with enhancing the student experience. In addition to student focused work, I also work in fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion and served as the Chair of my department’s Diversity and Inclusion Council.

Introduced to AACRAO at the beginning of my career in higher education, I longed for the day to be more involved. COVID world gave me an opportunity to attend my first AACRAO annual conference in 2021 virtually and I immediately found ways to be involved. I currently serve as the Vice Chair of Social Media and Communications for the Black Caucus, I presented a session at the 2022 Annual Conference, and I recently became a new member of the Information Systems Technology Committee and an Advocate for Congressional Hill Day 2022.
