Q & A
  • Why did you choose your major?
    I chose General Studies because I wanted a practical major that had the flexibility to transfer to a variety of bachelor’s degree programs.  At the time, I didn’t know what my four-year degree would be (I ended up getting a degree in Communication Studies from the University of Maryland).  The General Studies degree did the best job of maximizing both my short-term and long-term career objectives.
  • What advice would you give to students interested in your career path?
    While technical knowledge is obviously necessary for IT, don’t underestimate the value of critical thinking and writing.

    My ability to communicate on both an interpersonal and organizational level has helped set me apart from others in my field who are more strictly defined by their technical ability.
  • How was your overall experience at ACM?
    I found the staff at ACM to be helpful and encouraging, and the course offerings fit well into my work and family structure.  I would advise anyone who might be a little unsure of their career path to start at a two-year institution such as ACM to get acclimated to college and get your core requirements out of the way.
  • Who was your favorite ACM faculty/staff member?  Why?  
    I had the pleasure of being taught by the late great Colleen Burke after she retired from Fort Hill and taught briefly at ACM.  She will always be the teacher who had the most impact on my life.  She believed in me and wouldn’t accept less than my best.
  • What is your greatest achievement in your career?

    There have been several, but being part of the decision-making team for the Maryland Judiciary is sometimes unbelievable for me.

    The policies and procedures I choose have been implemented in courthouses across the state, and I’m proud and humbled to have that level of trust placed with me.
