As the Vice President of Education at CCIM, I provide leadership and oversight for CCIM's Designation Education and Ward Center programs, and am responsible for the management of the Institute's education department and implementation of education-related goals.
Prior to my work with CCIM, I served in leadership roles with the Strategic Account Management Association and American Bar Association. In these roles I collaborated with other departments to formulate the knowledge and professional development strategies, and produce professional development and continuing education programs for members, non-members, and the community at large.
My career began in higher education as an administrator after earning my M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration from Kent State University. I worked for several institutions, including DePaul University and Xavier University, implementing curriculum and educational programs for incoming and current students. Following the completion of my law degree, I transitioned to association management and continue to contribute to the Chicago legal community through pro bono work with the Chicago Bar Association and Chicago Volunteer Legal Services.
