I’m a nonprofit executive with an interest in community relations. I am continually looking for ways to improve communication among employees and stakeholders. A natural leader who is willing to change elevations to move the mission along, I am also comfortable letting my staff take the lead. In my ten years of library administration, I have shown a knack for project management, internal structure, and finances. I also have a deep understanding of how technology can improve organizations, as well as the lives of the people they serve. I am always researching new ways to encourage employees to meet, communicate, and come to decisions. I enjoy working with the media and the public, and always looking for new avenues and channels of communication. I never shy away from a moment to promote the organization for which I work.
