Employment: Senior Administrative Assistant to Andrew Kauffman, Vice President, Marriott International; with Marriott International for one year. Prior: Crucell Biologics and EMMES Corporation.
Education: CAP Certification, OM Specialty, IAAP; Madison Area Technical College; studies in Applied Science for Administrative Professional.
IAAP Background: Division: 2013-14 President; 2012-13 President-Elect; 2011-12 Vice President. Chapter: 2010-11 President; 2008-10 Vice President; 2008-10 Newsletter Editor, Fundraising Committee Chair, Bylaws and Standing Rules Committee Chair.
Statement of Interest: I am always looking for a challenge – to not only apply what has brought me success; but to also find new approaches and develop additional skills, while working to succeed on that new challenge. My journey, within IAAP, has been rewarding: First, the path taken to lead the Frederick Chapter, to become more IAAP objectives-oriented and more professional. Then, the path taken at the Division level, focusing on the same themes, while handling the challenges there, working with the Division Leadership to become more Association business-focused and integrating the Chapters into being a collective force. Moving to the District level will allow me to work with the NE District Divisions to provide guidance and materials to promote, achieve, and maintain Association performance, to achieve its strategic and operational business imperatives and objectives; and work directly with HQ leadership on creating repeatable processes to maintain the advances achieved.
