I am a college student educator with a reputation as an organizer, collaborator, and catalyst for educational change.
My higher education career has spanned 20+ years including positions including professor, assessment practitioner, and student affairs educator. In my current position as Master of Higher Education Administration and Doctorate of Education Program Director at New England College, I help prepare the next generation of professionals to improve educational organizations. As president of ACPA – College Student Educators International, from 2015-2016, I dad the distinct privilege of leading the premiere higher education association centered on fostering college student learning and development. As founder of Student Affairs Assessment Leaders (SAAL) and President of the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) I further a national agenda of accountability and continuous improvement of higher education programs and services.
For my contributions to student affairs and higher education I have been recognized by receiving ACPA’s Annuit Coeptis award and Diamond Honoree awards.
I hold a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Education Leadership and Policy Studies and a Master of Arts degree in Sociology both from the University of New Hampshire as well as a Master of Arts degree in College and University Administration and a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Sociology from Michigan State University.
In my free time enjoys reading, biking, kayaking, and losing to Facebook Friends in Scrabble.
