Project Manager, Conferences and Events

What I like most about my role within the Center is…

Meetings and events are the catalyst to making changes, educating attendees and growing an industry.  It’s wonderful to be a part of something that has been an institution for over 30 years, yet is even more relevant today. 

What I believe in

Everyone can make a difference in the world no matter where you grew up, your education and your career choice.

Previous work highlights

After working in a number of industries including real estate, pharma and healthcare I’m thrilled to be working with the team at the Center for Reading Recovery and Literacy Collaborative.  My experience will enable me to assist the team in creating a successful Literacy for All Conference and celebrate the opportunity for everyone to read, learn and grow!

Favorite book

The Outlander Series, Diana Gabaldon

Fun fact

A lot of kids dream of getting a pony for Christmas and that dream came true for me when I was 10 years old.  And his name was Applejacks.
