FOCUS ON SUPPORTING OUR YOUTH

As a beneficiary of community outreach youth programs, I understand the positive and lasting impact these programs can have on young people’s lives. I have been a leader in educational and employment opportunities for youth, including serving as president of the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club of Chambersburg and co-instituting the Chambersburg YMCA Achievers Program. In addition, I am the founder and director of the Friday Night Youth Recreation Program for youth aged 12-18, which is designed to keep children off the street and instead in a safe and productive environment.

PROFESSIONAL ACHIEVEMENTS

I served as the Associate Dean of Students, Director of the Office of Organizational Development and Multicultural Training, and Director of Multicultural Student Affairs at Shippensburg University and Assistant Residence Life Area Coordinator for the University of Delaware. During my tenure at these institutions, I was dedicated to transforming students of promise into students of purpose. I created program initiatives including the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Student-to-Student Leadership Conference, the State System Showcase Conference, and the Women’s Leadership Conference to provide leadership development opportunities for students.

HONORS & RECOGNITIONS

In recognition of my contributions to diversity and service to the community, I have been awarded the Shippensburg University Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. March for Humanity Award and Outstanding Effort Award, the ACT 101 Distinguished Service Award, the University of Delaware Richard A. Wilson Outstanding Service Award, the Pennsylvania Black Conference on Higher Education Appreciation and Outstanding Service Award, and the YMCA Community Development Award.

EDUCATION

I earned a Master of Science in College Student Personnel, a Master of Science in College Counseling, and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.
