My career evolved beginning in business as a retail store manager.
From that point, I worked with non-profit adult learning organizations as a trainer and program specialist and finally director.
Out of that experience, I took on the role of Human Resources Director for a large chain of bookstores and from there, my career has focused specifically on workforce development and training.
I have more than 15 years of hands on experience as a trainer and Workforce Development Specialist in both public and private sector environments.
And in that capacity, I have also spent the better part of the past ten years in a recruiting role.
I have worked the full spectrum of the Career Development process.
I completed the Metropolitan State College Reading tutorial program for elementary level students. I have substituted for elementary and middle school level classes that included reading, study skills, elementary level math and French/Spanish beginning level classes. I completed all coursework for teacher certification through Metropolitan State University Teacher Certification programs.
As the Director of Programs for a respected non-profit organization focused on providing educational opportunities, including GED, ESOL/ESL, Adult Basic Skills, Reading and Writing skills, I was not only responsible for teaching our students, I was also responsible for training and mentoring more than 300 volunteer tutors each year in teaching learning and study skills.
In subsequent positions since the position with Adult Learning Source, I have worked with at risk youth in GED and Basic Skills workshops, helping those challenged learners with study, reading and writing skills.
From 1999 to 2002, I was working toward teacher licensure at Metro State College in Secondary Education with and emphasis on Reading. Unfortunately, personal circumstances did not allow me to complete the entire licensure process, however I was able to complete all of the required coursework.
