My goal is to maintain our virtual and in-person programs' excellence and attract an even wider audience for future educational programs.

A: Before joining NCPERS, I was the lead project manager with a membership organization in DC.

I spend my free time visiting art museums, my most recent visits being the Rubell Museum in Washington, DC and the PAAM in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
