Director of Certification & Financial Programs,
ASBO International


It’s wonderful being a part of the ASBO International team! Having served the non-profit industry for 20 years in a variety of roles, I can automatically tell when an association goes the extra mile to provide vital resources and exceptional benefits to its constituents. My area of expertise includes working with subject-matter experts worldwide to develop and administer certifications and ensuring the programs adhere to the highest accreditation standards. My additional experience includes: compliance with ANSI/ISO 17024 accreditation (best practices, regulations, and audits); college credit equivalency recommendations; and “Support for Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies” (SAFETY) Act requirements.

Association volunteers have taught me a lot, and I have deep respect for the expertise they share to equip stakeholders with important tools to excel in their field. I am proud to be a part of ASBO International’s mission to advance the nation’s leading certification program for school business professionals, the SFO® Certification. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me; I look forward to an open exchange of ideas and opportunities to work together.
