Leadership Experience

I’ve led classrooms of learners (including English language learners) from ages 14-65 since 2008, and I’ve led small work groups of my peers, both in education and in correctional program development.  I have an M.A. in Applied Linguistics, a B.A. in English Literature with a minor in History.  I’ve taken so much and such a variety of training that it’s hard to summarize it, but a fair bit of it has been on leadership topics.  I am a thinker AND a doer.

I crave an opportunity for greater leadership, especially professionally but also on a volunteer basis in my community.  This is the challenge I’m ready and looking for!

How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse

If you have a volunteer or paid leadership position that requires anything like my knowledge and skills, I’d love to hear from you!  I am also very willing to share my experiences in education, League of Women Voters, higher education, and/or state government (corrections) with anyone who’s interested.  Like many people, I think, I feel under-accomplished to position myself as a mentor, but I am ready to put myself out there and try.

Other Information

I work in adult education currently with the Montana Department of Corrections and love how this career path has put me in contact with so many skilled, dedicated coworkers.  I have a long commute, but when I’m not working or driving, I like to garden, read, and appreciate all that the city of Missoula has to offer.  I love to support local and Montana businesses.  My husband and I and our two dogs are honestly living the dream in our little slice of Montana heaven!
