How long have you been a NACE member? On the board?

The first NACE meeting I attended was in 2010, having quickly realizing the value in membership, I joined shortly after. I took the leap to be on the board as Director of Communications in 2019. It was such a fulfilling job that I decided to stay on the board for 2020 where I am Co-Director of Programs with the amazing Constance Crouch. Together we are working hard to continue the legacy of engaging, fun, educational programs in 2020.

What is your personal motto?

Always do what is right – even if doing the right thing is extremely hard.
