Dean of Academic Programs, Rice Lake
I work with faculty, students, community members, businesses, and other stakeholders to provide educational opportunities for students to be successful in their current employment goals and their future endeavors. Supporting faculty, ensuring industry-current curriculum, providing dual enrollment opportunities for high school students, and developing professional advancement career paths are a few of my contributions to the college.
Prior to WITC, I taught business and information technology for 19 years within the K12 system, taking on additional responsibilities as the Career Academy Program coordinator, Youth Apprenticeship coordinator and Future Business Leaders of America advisor. Professional achievements include the Lorraine Missling Outstanding Achievement Award from the Wisconsin Business Educators Association and Wisconsin Standards for Business and Information Technology Leadership Team member. Outside of education, I was a branch manager for a local corporation where my duties included accounting, marketing, advertising, and customer service.
