My background as a photographic educator and administrator for over twenty years at PCA&D, School of Visual Arts, Hunter College/CUNY, LaGuardia Community College/CUNY, Teachers' College/Columbia University, Dartmouth College and Yale University, has given me extensive pedagogical, governance and leadership experience.
A point of interest is promoting greater SPE support for contingent faculty, and current students. I was an adjunct for twelve years before I was hired for my current full-time position in 2010, and I believe SPE can foster and engage these important groups within the community.
I would also like to concentrate on working with international and national organizations that can bring added diversity, ideas, and new members to SPE. I have developed relationships for my current institution with several universities in South Korea, and have made connections in China, Singapore, France and Mexico.
