I started work at Guilford College in October of 2019 to serve as the ITS Client Services Manager. As of March 2020, I began serving as the Interim ITS Director, and am now the ITS Director.
Prior to joining Guilford, I worked in technology services at UNCG for 20+ years, including 10 years leading the ITS Client Services team, as well as leadership roles in data management & analytics, research computing, project management, and academic technology planning. I enjoy working collaboratively across academic, administrative, and student service areas to identify, prioritize, plan, and promote solutions to meet technology needs. Prior to my first position at UNCG, I worked as an academic research assistant and data analyst in the Department of Sociology at UNC Chapel Hill.
I have long been enthusiastic about higher education. I was born at Emory University hospital the day my father defended his doctoral dissertation proposal. I wanted to help the defense go quickly! I am a "double" alumna of UNCG (MA 96, Sociology; MA 02, Applied Statistics), and completed my undergraduate education at Centre College of Kentucky (BS, Psychology, Anthropology).
I am enthusiatic about collaboration across educational institutions and look forward to connecting with Educause colleagues from all types of higher ed institutions to discuss IT services and the future of IT.
