Why should OAND members vote for you. Not only include your past but also include what you can bring to the position.
Serving our profession has always been a great opportunity and a priority for me. If we don’t act, we aren’t going to move forward. I have served many leadership positions at the district and state level and have accomplished many goals during these tenures. My most recent experience being president of OAND where we accomplished a lot. To name a few key accomplishments, we developed a new 5-year strategic plan, new vision and mission statements, updated the OAND website, initiated the OAND Supporter Program, and developed the Social Media Committee and Diversity Task Force. As your delegate-elect, I will work to inform you about the issues affecting our profession while acting as a voice for you. I believe that listening and following through on issues that are important to you are necessary in helping move our profession forward.
Something personal about yourself that you would like to share.
I am a wife, a mother, a lover of plants, and a wannabe wine enthusiast. I enjoy reading and watching great shows. I particularly love when an author has created a new world with maps, languages, and species. My favorites are Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. I’ve already poisoned my 6-year old with the later where I think we’ve read every possible Star Wars book that the library has to offer, and he can probably now beat me in any Star Wars trivia game because he absorbs everything about the story. I look forward to when he’s old enough to enjoy my other favorites.
