I am a career higher education administrator and academic leader with extensive experience and success developing academic programs and processes. My experience in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors widens my understanding of organizations and how they successfully function. I have held the key academic titles of associate provost, academic dean for graduate, undergraduate, professional studies and continuing education, as well as program director for sponsored research/development and instructional technology, respectively. I am particularly well-skilled in academic policy creation and enrollment management for both non and for-profit institutions. My accreditation experience includes acting as a regional and programmatic evaluator (MSCHE/CAEP), leading accreditation review teams (MSCHE/CAEP) and applications for regional candidacy (SACS COC), and serving as a consultant to institutions undergoing accreditation. I am pleased and proud to be responsible for the establishment of many partnerships and collaborations with both educational and private entities, gaining valuable experience for students and faculty. I have well-demonstrated experience leading projects and working collaboratively with constituencies. With my colleagues, I have been actively involved in the creation of focused-training and professional development programs. I am an experienced instructor of graduate and undergraduate studies, teaching courses at numerous colleges and universities.
