Assistant Dean, Outreach & Engagement

I am the Assistant Dean for Outreach & Engagement at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. I hold a master’s degree in Interdisciplinary Arts and a bachelor’s in Dance from Columbia College in Chicago. Prior to joining JMU, I worked in arts education in Chicago, first with Urban Gateways: Center for Arts Education and then with Chicago Public Schools. I've always had a passion for the arts, and for connecting schools, children and teachers with cultural institutions, performing companies and residency artists. I was able to continue my passion of bringing people and communities together in my role at JMU. Currently, I provide leadership for graduate degree and certificate programs, develop and lead engagement efforts focusing on community engagement, oversee new and existing program design of non-credit programs, including PK-12, professional development, and the Lifelong Learning Institute. Humor and Happiness are key values in my approach to work.
