Penn Staters — we need a change on the board of trustees. I am passionate about Penn State. I want to serve on the Penn State board of trustees to make a difference by reinstituting common sense, ensuring open communication, insightful planning and thoughtful decision making. It is important to me that the proud traditions and values that were instilled in each of us continue.

We need new leadership. We need board members that want to do the job not just to boost their resumes. Penn State needs a board that is proactive, accepts accountability for decisions, provides sound governance and is strategically aligned with its mission. I vow not to be a blind follower.

As those who know me will attest, I will constructively challenge decisions and actively voice my opinions to ensure that common sense prevails and the right thing is done. I have been extremely successful as an operational leader so I know how to get things done!

As a business professional for 30 years, 20 of which have been spent in executive leadership roles developing company strategies, I want to ensure Penn State continues to be recognized as a leading institution with high values and a place where Joe Paterno’s legacy will continue.

I ask for your support.
