My journey at Hood College has allowed me to pursue my interests in leadership development both in and out of the classroom. At Hood, I have served as the associate dean and dean of the Graduate School and the vice president for enrollment management.

I also worked on the original accreditation work for NCATE. Over the years, I have been successful in grant writing and completed both program development and program assessment grants for Maryland State Department of Education and Standards-based Teacher Education program. I value and respect the role that assessment plays in course and program evaluation.
