My passion, bank of ideas and can do attitude inspire me to share my vision of cooperative advancement. Everyone does better with the correct motivation. Repeatedly, I have seen how much one person affects others. A positive counselor enhances the camp experience and a motivated supervisor moves employees to eagerly take on new challenges. An enthusiastic person can change the dynamics of a group from good to great! In more than 15 years of leadership in profit, non-profit and higher education, I have seen with my own teams that there are consistently three key factors for fostering a motivated workforce. An empowered employee or volunteer flourishes with higher expectations, greater responsibility and timely feedback.

I am a proud graduate of Marquette University and Eastern Illinois University. I bring to our discussion a Master’s degree in Communication Studies with an organizational communication focus, over ten years of successful marketing/public relations and management experience, nine years of increasing responsibility of supervisory and fiscal management including eight years of strong leadership as a Director of Student Affairs working with community service, relations and event management at a higher education institution. My ever present fierce determination, creativity and uncompromising optimism walks with me always.

I am energized by the opportunity to enable people to become their own agents of change. Watching an individual move from merely an observer to become the owner of their community/company is incredible. I stand ready and motivated! Let’s get to work!
