Education Committee Chair 
I started working in the higher education policy administration field two years ago, after spending several years focusing on K-12 education policy. 
I'm interested in all facets of education policy, but had experiences largely focused in the K-12 world. Higher education is fascinating and operates very differently from just about any other institution out there. Although it can be difficult, I enjoy bringing together areas of campus used to working in silos to improve the campus-wide policy-making processes. 
Higher education policy administration is such a diverse field. I wanted the opportunity to work more closely with people from institutions that might operate very differently from my own. I think that serving on the ACUPA Board is an excellent way to learn how policy administration works on other campuses around the world. 
Currently, I am working with the Education Committee on thinking of new ways to present professional development opportunities for members. 
So this is more about the Town of Chapel Hill, but it is easily my favorite "little thing" about working here: all of the fire trucks in Chapel Hill are Carolina Blue!

As the old joke goes, "God must have been a Tar Heel because he made the sky Carolina Blue!"
