I’ve been around academia for much of my career: I taught high school English for six years (in Virginia and Massachusetts) before going back to graduate school. Prior to joining Blackboard, I worked for the Arthur M. Blank Center for Entrepreneurship at Babson College. In fact, academia is sort of a genetic condition in my family: my dad’s a university chancellor, and my mom and brother are both professors.

In my current role at Blackboard as the Manager of Blackboard Communities, I’m responsible for helping our clients connect and develop communities of practice. This includes managing the Greenhouse Awards granting program, and Bb Connections, as well as supporting regional user groups.

On a personal note…hmmm… my new favorite musician is Seu Jorge (Brazilian actor/musician who was featured as “Pele” in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou), and I can quote more lines from Raising Arizona than any normal person should.
