Nominee Bio-
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.
