People Who've Reported to Me

Government Operations Professional

As a “human-centric” leader, I believe that there is more to effectively operating local government than simply tax levies and performance metrics. It’s the employees in the organization and operational efficiencies that make a community shine. Because of this mantra, I have experienced success at every level of management in multiple organizations for over 23 years. I know how to build strong collaborations between government and industry. I am a Credentialed Manager with ICMA.
