Introduction I joined Peirce College in 2009 as the Dean of Career Development Services. At the time, my responsibilities included developing a new Career Services department. Since then, I have served as Vice President, Student Services, leading the strategic management of student based services and programs, and in my current role as Vice President, Institutional Advancement & Strategic Partnerships, where my focus is in aligning Peirce's mission with workforce and community needs. I'm also responsible for the College's strategic initiatives related to fundraising, alumni relations, and employer relations. I have a passion for helping Peirce's students and alumni progress personally and professionally, for sharing their stories, and for connecting them with opportunity and resources in our community.
