For the past year, I have been working with Mountain State University to develop and promote LeaderTalk. I enjoy collaborating and connecting:
- with MSU's School of Leadership and Professional Development faculty
- with current, former, and future students of MSU's leadership programs
- with other leadership bloggers
- and with our readers around the world.
Now, in addition to writing and promoting the LeaderTalk blog, I am teaching a cohort of students in Mountain State's online Bachelor of Science/Organizational Leadership program. As an online instructor, I am facilitating discussions about leadership and helping students apply their learning to their life and careers. This exciting new opportunity puts me in touch with students on a daily basis, learning first-hand about how MSU's leadership programs equip people to lead others more effectively.
My educational background is in writing and intercultural studies. Before deciding to stay home with my first daughter in 2001, I worked for a non-profit organization in a variety of roles including Service Coordination. I have also helped start and lead two churches and several educational cooperatives.
