I began my career at COD in 1978 as Coordinator of Developmental Education and went on to become Dean of Community Education and Resource Development while also serving as the Executive Director of the COD Foundation. I have also served on the Board of the Alumni Association and was elected to the Governing Board and served as Board President for two years. I had the great fortune to serve as the COD point person in the development of the McCallum Theatre, the Multi Agency Library, the Energy Technology Training Center and many other collaborative projects.
During my tenure at COD I was able to witness how the college changed thousands of lives, and how the college became more fully engaged and integrated with the cultural life of the community as well as play a central role in the economic development strategies of the valley. I will forever be a "Roadrunner" and, to this day, I continue to work with the college to increase college attendance in the valley.
