January 2009 — Present
I've had a variety of roles at CCCS including Dean, Director, and Project Manager. Currently, I lead a team of professionals who run a variety of projects for academic affairs including creating competency based education programming, creating of a grants and resource development department, administering of a $24.9 million grant for manufacturing and a $17.3 million grant for energy education and job growth and development, leading statewide efforts to increase the use of credit for prior learning, facilitating a state redesign of developmental education, an immersive and game-based learning project for faculty to create innovative learning solutions in and out of the classroom, efforts to develop classroom-based projects that can close equity gaps in education, and so many more. To do these projects I hire incredible, smart, innovative people and create the circumstances that allow them to excel at their work.
