A brief history:
I am currently the Director of Career & Innovation for a 30,000 student school district in Fort Collins, Colorado. I have been in this role since June 2018. From time to time, I am also an adjunct professor at the University of Northern Colorado.
Before landing here, I was on the education team at a Silicon Valley company that was started in a garage by two guys named Steve. In that role, I had the opportunity to with educational leaders from school districts around the country to envision, plan, implement, and scale innovative learning initiatives.
I have been a teacher, instructional technologist, and principal in Loveland, Colorado, Greeley, Colorado, and Broward County, Florida. I have also been an adjunct professor of educational leadership at Colorado State University where I taught Ethics and School Resource Management.
