What current project are you working on at your institution?
I am working on the Living Our Values Every Day (L.O.V.E. GT) campaign which is designed to advance the values that are central to the Georgia Tech strategic plan, which drives us to increase the impact we have in the world through ambitious goals and bold actions. During the past year we been championing several efforts related to developing leaders, engaging our campus community, and embedding cultural expectations into the operations and environment across Georgia Tech.
How has your NCCI volunteer experience benefited your professional development and/or work at your institution?
Being a newly elected Board member has benefited my professional development by empowering me with the ability to serve in very collaborative and strategic role within NCCI. In addition, I most recently served as the inaugural Chair of the Volunteer Development Committee which directly enhanced by skill sets related to leading teams, strategic planning, and community building. Lastly, being an active volunteer has allowed me to share the valuable NCCI offerings within my institution.
What is the most memorable aspect of your NCCI connection?
My most memorable aspect of NCCI was attending the Annual Conference in Denver back in 2019. I was so inspired and encouraged to be among like-minded individuals who work in a similar space and experience related challenges. During this event, I was able to establish meaningful connections, share knowledge and exchange best practices, and ultimately leave with tangible ideas, takeaways, and an “all-star” rolodex of thought leaders to call upon moving forward.
What influenced your decision to engage with NCCI as a volunteer?
My team within Georgia Tech Strategic Consulting encouraged me to get involved with NCCI by attending the conference back in 2019 as great avenue to further my knowledge and build upon my networks. After that experience, I was immediately sold on the value, impact, and amazing community of practitioners within NCCI and have not looked back ever since!
