Contribution to Ivy Tech

Assistant Chair: English, Communication, Languages | Marion

I hire and manage fulltime and adjunct faculty, schedule faculty assignments, participate in leadership decision-making, handle student/faculty grievances, and other administrative duties.

Faculty Advisor | Phi Theta Kappa

After serving for a semester as an advisor in our regional chapter Phi Theta Kappa chapter, I championed the chartering of a new chapter on the Marion campus (Beta Phi Tau)—and developed a stellar student leadership team both years since. In this role, I empower students to leave a legacy on their campus and in their community as they simultaneously find opportunities to advance their own career and academic goals.

Faculty Advisor | Culture Club

As one of the faculty advisors to charter this club in Marion, I helped design bylaws and recruit officers. The purpose of the club is to help students to achieve the Global Studies Certificate.

Content Developer | Center for Instructional Technology

  • In 2016 I was selected to co-develop the Open Educational Resources (OER) for Ivy Tech’s Introduction to Literature Course. We identified and remixed, revised, reused, and created OER, plus created ancillary assessment items and media presentations, to fill content gaps so that all objectives and competencies were met for that course.
  • In 2017 I was selected to develop the English 111 component of Ivy Tech’s Competency-Based Educational program. I created an extensive pre-assessment quiz, practice activities, and post-assessment quizzes.

Promotion Committee Chairperson | Ivy Tech Community College (Marion)

The Vice-Chancellor of Academic Affairs appointed me as the chairperson of a peer’s promotion committee. The committee is responsible for reviewing the faculty member’s Portfolio and make a recommendation for or against promotion from the classification of Assistant Professor to Associate Professor.

Circle of Ivy / Foundation

I am a member of the Circle of Ivy (at the Ivy Leader level), a Women’s Philanthropy Circle. Circle of Ivy creates resources and raises funds to diminish barriers to higher education for Ivy Tech students. In doing so, Circle of Ivy cultivates and celebrates women as philanthropists.

I am also a 1% percent donor for the Foundation. I believe in our students, and want to contribute to their success financially.
