How did you come to work with students who learn differently?
Since completing a U.S. Air Force career as a master instructor, I have worked for the last 30 years in leadership and management of nonprofit/profit organizations in a variety of capacities.
I have taught for several colleges and universities working with diverse populations including students with learning differences.
My career experiences have included service as director of contract administration, director of revenue maximization, regional director of quality assurance, school of business director, and currently the department chair for human services and psychology. I have enjoyed a long experience in negotiation, mediation, program planning, grant writing, and organizational human relations communication techniques.
I play in a rock and roll band and enjoy boating and time with family.
