How I Got Into Association Management

I served on the board of directors for TCEA for 13 years. Shortly after that, the executive director position came open as I was retiring from education and it was a perfect fit for me.

What I Like About My Job

I love the amazing individuals that I get to work with every day: the board of directors, my staff, and our members. They are all dedicated to helping students achieve their greatest potential and be successful in life.

My Biggest Challenge

I tend to want to do too many projects at once, which can scare my board and staff. I like to challenge the status quo and ask “why” about everything we do.

What I Am Most Proud of at Our Association

I am so proud of what TCEA has accomplished over our 35 years and how we’ve grown. We are known as an association that “creates amazement” and is always there to support and empower our members.

What I Want to Learn From Other TSAE Members

Because I am a newcomer to the association world, I am eager to learn better ways to help my members and how to grow my organization.
