Highline College, WA
My life experience and proven leadership are two qualities that have prepared me well to serve you on the ACCT Board. I’ve experienced first-hand how a family can be transformed through a community/technical college education. My 25- year career as a US Army Officer taught me not only leadership skills but the importance of collaboration and partnership. During my tenure as WA State Association of College Trustees (ACT) President using these skills, I was instrumental in getting Washington’s version of the DREAM Act passed and implemented. I’ve had vast experience in Legislative Advocacy as Chair at ACT at all governmental levels. I was named 2017 Pacific Region Trustee Leadership Awardee and as well as the 2017 Dale M Ensign Trustee Leader of the year.
