“I have had many user experiences, both good and bad. I use the lessons learned from these experiences to produce a positive and successful online learning experience for our students. I ensure that our staff members have the components they need to operate our schools successfully. I don’t want any student to ever feel as if he or she is on their own in the world of online learning.”

“I’m a strong believer in the ‘second chance,’ having had one myself. I like being part of an organization that empowers people to change their lives for the better, and helps them to take control of their own futures.”
