Having worked with educational technologies and media in higher education and K-12 my entire career, I have been continuously focused on faculty development, the advancement of student learning and operational success through innovative ideas powered by technology. As a former educational computing consultant and manager of media services at Duquesne University, I have worked as Technology Director for the award-winning Hampton Township School District since 2004, where I lead the technology team in support of the District's primary mission, which is to work collaboratively with the community in support of every child becoming creative and innovative problem-solvers and communicators. Simultaneously serving as Chair of the PAECT Chief Technology Officer Council, the Pennsylvania chapter of CoSN, and as a board member of the FBI Pittsburgh Citizens Academy Alumni Association, I work to advance technology, learning, and leadership in education as well as school and community safety across the state. In recognition of this work, I was selected as the national 2013 CoSN Withrow CTO of the Year award recipient, PAECT Outstanding Leader of the Year (Pennsylvania’s ISTE award), a 2012 Pittsburgh FBI/Infragard Champion of Change and a 2015/2017 Finalist for the Pittsburgh Technology Council Education sector CIO of the Year. A PA Certified Instructional Technology Specialist and CoSN Certified Educational Technology Leader (CETL), I have a B.S. in Biology, M.S. in Multimedia Technology, and an doctorate in Educational Leadership and Management where my research investigated the effect of implementing instructional coaching with digital learning on high school math and science.Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?
I was first introduced to HundrED during a 2018 CoSN delegation to Norway and Finland and since that time have been investigating the community's work to spotlight innovations around the world. It is for this reason, that I have sought to make HundrED part of my global learning network.
