As the executive director for the Association of School Business Officials International, I have overall responsibility for the association’s membership growth, operational efficiency, financial stability, affiliated partnerships, and staff development/performance.
Prior to becoming executive director, I served eight years as the executive director for Arizona ASBO. I also was president/CEO of two Chambers of Commerce in Arizona; the managing director for a Washington, D.C., lobbying firm representing a wide variety of organizations, including foreign embassies and educational institutions; and the producer of “Ask Congress,” a half-hour public affairs television show airing on PBS.
Key areas of my education and work experience have included management, leadership, board relations, public relations and marketing, legislative affairs, event management, and strategic communications, along with a focus on membership development.
In addition to spending time with my sons in Arizona and my extended family in Florida, I enjoy golf, reading, hiking, and traveling.
