Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance, South Louisiana Community College
I have been part of SACUBO since 2006. I am currently serving on the Community College Constituent Committee for the second time. Several years back, I was given the opportunity, and it was such a powerful experience, I sought out another opportunity to serve. I was on the Host Committee when SACUBO was in New Orleans a couple years ago. I have used this platform to reach out to other institutions for increased membership and participation and have served as a reviewer of best practices.
To avoid a big wedding, I established residency in Jamaica (not as big a deal as it sounds…) and eloped with Michelle in a traditional Jamaican wedding.
I volunteer because I have seen the benefits of attending timely, relevant, professional development that SACUBO offers. SACUBO is real time, real applications, and real benefits. Additionally, the connections I have made with other financial individuals from various community colleges and across constituent committees has been extremely beneficial. Our members are always willing to take a call and offer guidance.
Assistant Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, University of Central Florida
I attended my first SACUBO annual conference in April 2019 and joined the SACUBO Research Universities Constituent Committee in May 2019. I also participated in my first year of CBMI at the University of Kentucky in July 2019.
I have a Ph.D. in Philosophy.
Having previously worked in Academic Affairs, I became involved with SACUBO to more deeply understand the financial and administrative issues faced by higher education. SACUBO has exposed me to a broad range of ideas and trends and given me insights that I never would have had otherwise. SACUBO’s power lies in harnessing the collective knowledge of thousands of institutional leaders for the benefit of all. By participating, you are contributing to the solutions needed by higher education during unprecedented times.
Vice President for Finance and Administration, Ringling College of Art and Design
I started attending SACUBO conferences in 2003. I have served on the Investment Committee, Professional Development Committee, Research Universities Constituent Committee, and I am currently serving on the Audit Committee. I have presented at Drive-In Workshops and assisted with introductions at numerous Fall and Annual meetings. Being involved with different committees has really given me a unique opportunity to learn about everything that goes on behind the scenes at SACUBO.
I have long been told that I have the patience of a saint, and I now have proof of that! For a mindfulness seminar, I was hooked up to electrodes while the speaker explained brain waves and compared volunteers with examples. Mine best matched monks that had taken vows of silence. I think it’s a great quality for working in small private colleges!
I wanted to be able to give back to an organization that supported my own professional development and networking with colleagues. Having a supportive network and relationships with individuals in institutions similar to the one you serve helps develop perspective and insight into your own institution. Volunteering with SACUBO enables you to deepen your understanding of higher education and connect with more professionals who understand your challenges and opportunities.
Executive Director for Academic Budgeting, Fayetteville State University
I have been attending SACUBO conferences since 2012. I have attended the Fall and Annual conferences and Women’s Leadership Forums. I am currently a member of the Comprehensive and Doctoral Institutions Constituent Committee.
I was crowned 1980 Miss Black Sacramento and won scholarships which support college education.
I loved learning from others’ experiences, and I have shared my experiences with others. I would love to volunteer to help greet or assist at registration and introduce guests at sessions.
