My career in higher education began when I was hired as a resident director at Illinois State University after completing my master’s degree in student personnel administration. Through the years, my career progressed from that position to director of student activities, to assistant dean of students, to dean of students and senior student affairs officer. Outside of student affairs, I gained experience as a senior associate for a major non-profit organization with a focus on K-12 student success.
Since arriving at UNT, I have taught graduate level classes, supervised internships and chaired dissertations. Also, I have served as coordinator of the master’s program in higher education. Currently, I serve as principal investigator for a Communities Foundation of Texas grant for the establishment of three early college high schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Two of those schools are in their second year of operation.
