I was honored to have been selected to participate in the ASAHP National Leadership Development Program in 2013.  Since 2013, I have attended the biannual conferences and participated in the strategic task force meetings. Currently, I serve as Dean of the College of Health Sciences & Professions at the University of North Georgia.  Participation in the ASAHP National Leadership Development Program provided me with a solid preparation to meet the intense demands of serving as a dean.  The program also provided me with a network of colleagues that are invaluable as resources and as a sounding board for advice.  I enjoy serving in associations and assisting with the important work that is done on membership’s behalf. Throughout my career, I have held numerous elected and appointed positions in national associations.  I would be honored to serve on the Nominations & Elections Committee on behalf of my peers.
