Degrees and Certifications:
NEO Board Member
Executive Director, Neighbors’ Corporation (DBA “Project Neighbors”)
Personal Statement: NEO fits right in with the mission of Project Neighbors, a Valparaiso based not-for-profit committed to addressing issues of inequality through efforts in housing, daycare, medical care, education, and economic development. I am a former high school teacher and former owner of both a music store, Front Porch Music, and a construction company. NEO fits right in with the mission of Project Neighbors. I was asked to be on the NEO board to help with the transition from the existing facility to an alternative, NEO owned building, but having taught for ten years, I hope to offer insights into the process of enabling successful students.
