Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, in a family with roots in manufacturing.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in communication and public relations from North Carolina State University and continued on to earn my master’s degree in public administration.
During grad school, I did an internship with the NC Chamber, which represents the business community in North Carolina—through that internship, I learned all about workforce development.
Upon graduating and completing my internship, I stayed with the NC Chamber and worked as a policy development manager.
After a few years with the NC Chamber, I moved to Washington, D.C. to work for The Manufacturing Institute, which is the education and workforce partner to the National Association of Manufacturers.
I started with The Manufacturing Institute as a workforce programs manager and now work as the director of workforce initiatives.
