I am a poet and visual artist with more than 28 years of experience in higher education. I began as a data analyst, database administrator, and project manager. Since 2000, my specialty has been focused on enrollment management data. I was a college chief information officer (CIO) from 2009 until 2022 and rebuilt every aspect of campus technology during that time. I attribute my successes in various roles to my ability to communicate technical information to a general audience.
Despite my life in technology, my passion is the art of poetry. I have two published books of poetry with two more in draft form. I currently teach master’s level IT courses at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York.
I graduated from Goddard in 2020 in the MFA-W program in Vermont. I was a Goddard student board member in 2019 and 2020. When I was offered the chance to return to the board in 2022, I gladly accepted for one simple reason: I believe that the world needs Goddard, and I want to do whatever I can to help it thrive.
