I have been an Executive Director in the Texas system since we transitioned from JTPA over 20 years ago.
I have represented Texas on the Board of NAWDP for 5 or more years.
What is your vision for the workforce development profession?
Workforce is in a constant period of change. New workforce changes i think will result from the current "work-from-home"
model. Workforce must adapt to those changes to meet employer and employee needs. NAWDP includes front-line members that will effect those changes.
Do you have a particular interest area or passion in workforce development?
A few years ago, the Texas legislature moved Adult Learning to the Texas Workforce Commission. I have a particular interest in Adult learning as i think it is one of the first level JOB TRAINING programs. Adult learning is a necessary component to alleviate poverty.
Why do you want to serve on the Board?
i believe that i still have contributions to make due my experience. i am in a position with my board to meet the financial requirements of service on the Board.
|What do you think is the biggest challenge facing the profession today and how can NAWDP address that challenge?|
Several Challenges, but staying ahead or at least attune to INDUSTRY'S needs so that we can help prepare the workforce for those jobs.
