Why are you passionate about workforce development?
Creating successful workforce development programs ensures that we leverage the talent of our community to maintain a competitive edge for our region. In my work, my primary focus is to create the conditions for transforming a traditional educational organization into a scalable, sustainable personal learning environment. My strategic interest is in the design and development of a learning ecosystem including prenatal to grade three systems, learning zones and building a career superhighway–an uninterrupted career development pathway for students to discover their strengths and interests and transform them into talent capital that aligns to the demands of the global marketplace.
What do you like best about being on the Workforce Development Board?
I am proud to serve on a board that is diverse in membership yet laser focused on our charge to connect workers to careers that lead to gainful employment. As we develop talent for each worker, businesses grow and thrive, which serves to power our local economy.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I am an outdoor enthusiast. I spend most of my free time sailing and mountain biking.
