I have over 20 years’ experience in training and education in government, as an education program manager, employee development specialist, and branch chief. During this time, I designed and developed specialized training curricula to meet organizationally- defined objectives and goals. I directed and participated in the training of executives, management, supervisors, assessment staff, human resources specialists, investigators, auditors, and compliance officials. In addition, I have conducted program evaluation, organizational development projects, team building exercises, and quality improvement programs in the Department of Education, Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, and Internal Revenue Service. I have been a university professor in public administration, adult education and human resource development, and interpersonal and organizational communications. I am the author of two books, over 20 refereed journal articles, and have presented over 25 research and practice reports at academic and professional conferences nationally and internationally. My academic background includes a doctorate in adult education and human resource development, a masters of public administration, a master of arts in curriculum and instruction, and a bachelor’s in English.
