Long-Term Vision

I would like to find a place where my evolving skill sets and mindset can continue to grow - a place I can thrive. I plan to find that in one of the following settings:

  • executive, program director, or among the leadership of an emerging education innovation program
  • one of the nation's leading education innovation consultants and facilitator working to implement transformation programs and projects for secondary and postsecondary education institutions
  • academic dean of an innovative higher education program

If you have any projects that we can work on together, or if you think I might find a home in one of your programs please contact me - would love to chat!
