Why have you chosen to run for the CPRS State Board of Directors?

After serving two terms on the CPRS State Board as Region 1 Representative, I’ve connected with countless CPRS members and leaders throughout the state who are passionate about what we do. We give our time, blood, sweat, and tears to our communities every day and need CPRS so we can connect with other professionals, develop our skills, and motivate us to do the hard work even when it seems daunting.  

What personal attributes, skills, or knowledge would you bring to the State Board of Directors if elected?

I bring an incredible passion for our profession, an ability to connect with our members, and a critical thought process to the State Board of Directors. I use my ingenuity, connectedness, and resources to provide our members with opportunities to learn, develop, and thrive. I bring a willingness to try new ideas and a desire to connect our members to the remarkable opportunities and services that CPRS provides. 

What is the greatest challenge our profession faces and how will you lead to address that challenge?

The greatest challenge our profession currently faces is how quickly we can adapt to a changing world. With so many factors affecting our profession such as changing societal norms caused by lingering effects of the pandemic and legislation changing the way we operate, CPRS needs to recognize these changes and respond proactively to provide our members with the information and resources they need to succeed.

Please share relevant leadership experiences outside of your work environment.  

I have been involved with CPRS since 2005 with over ten years in leadership roles on District, Section, and State Boards. My CPRS leadership is highlighted by serving two terms as the State Board Region 1 Representative and as the District 3 Board as President and President-Elect. I also currently serve on the JEDI Counsel and Member Engagement Committee. Through my leadership and service in CPRS, I strive to continually improve the connections, resources, and development that are necessary for members to succeed every day.
