Qualifications and Reasons to Serve:
Throughout my career I have been involved in formation or educational design in one platform or another. My history includes creating, designing and presented Graduate Ethics educational programs for Physician residents, and adult education program including continuing work with the Center of Ministry Leadership. In the last several years one of my focuses has been on access, for children on a disability spectrum, to enter programs which will assist them in seeking permanent employment such as ProjectSeach. Education has been a passion of mine and I understand how academics function in the reality of tight fiscal consideration and scrutiny.
