"You are important, capable, worthy, and enough."
There is always so much pressure to know your elevator pitch! How about I just tell you about the experiences that have shaped who I am today, what I’m passionate about, and what gets my attention?
I have worked in higher education for 13 years, from a student leader, hall director, community director, assistant director of housing, associate director of residential education, director of residential education and now Assistant Dean of Students. I’ve worked at medium public institutions, small privates, and medium-sized private colleges. I’ve worked with housing technology companies, most recently RoomSync, incorporating a practitioner perspective for customer service and consulted for associations to develop courses for educators to create learning outcome-based training curriculum. I recently completed my dissertation at Northeastern University, focusing my studies on organizational leadership and my dissertation on the lived experiences of queer chief student affairs officers.
Arguably, the best part of my job is teaching Personal Empowerment, a course for students to develop self awareness and self management skills based on developing Emotional Intelligence. As a nationally certified Personal Empowerment Instructor and Master Trainer, I can not only create an engaging program or workshop designed to increase EQ, but also prepare a curriculum to help your team facilitate their own EQ workshops. I also provide one-on-one coaching, and empowerment classes and workshops.
