Involvement with SACUBO

I participated in the Next Generation Chief Business Officer (NCGBO) program and conference in Savannah, Georgia about 10 years ago. I was so impressed with the valuable insights and best practices shared, I made an effort to attend future Fall Workshops and Annual Meetings whenever possible. I am currently serving on the Community Colleges Constituent Committee. I have been a co-presenter for several Drive-In Workshops on various accounting standards and best practices at the Florida Council of Business Affairs (COBA) meetings.

My first job was delivering newspapers when I was 10.

Decision to Volunteer with SACUBO

My children have grown, so I had more time to devote to volunteer. SACUBO offers valuable training, expertise, and best practices for college and university professionals regardless of your years of experience or institution’s size. SACUBO provides networking and learning opportunities in a professional, respectful, and engaging environment. I encourage everyone to attend a Drive-In Workshop or Fall Workshop to see for themselves what valuable programs SACUBO offers at such an affordable price.

Number of Years in Higher Education: 13

Involvement with SACUBO

I attended three years of CBMI from 2008-2010 and have been attending SACUBO Conferences since 2010. I have been a member, Vice Chair, and Chair of the Research Universities Constituent Committee from 2017-2020. I was a member of the Professional Development Committee and SACUBO Board during 2019-2020. I am currently the Chair of the Distinguished Service Committee and helping with marketing and communications (including the LinkedIn site) for SACUBO.

An Interesting Fact

I have boy/girl twins who are 16. I have lots of twins in my family, and one of my family members has two sets of twins. I also love to travel! I have been to several foreign countries and 48 states with the goal of visiting all 50 with my immediate family.

Decision to Volunteer with SACUBO

I regularly attend the SACUBO conferences and workshops, so I wanted to help shape the agenda and continue the high standards. The more you put into SACUBO as a volunteer, the more you will get out of it. And, your institution will ultimately benefit as you build your network of higher education colleagues. Volunteering with SACUBO is a great way to give back and help an organization that benefits us all.
