Founder and Principal Coach, Rise Up Leadership Coaching
Bio: My forty-year career in Higher Education Leadership included serving as President of Berkshire Community College and Chesapeake College and as Executive Director of the Institute for Community College Development at Cornell. Exceeded all fundraising goals, led major green construction projects, and guided a college through the recession of 2008-2009. Served on local and national boards focused on business and workforce development, education for women and girls, and the arts. Proud that the deans and vice presidents I mentored all went on to be successful college presidents. Retired to the Berkshires in 2018 and founded Rise Up Leadership Coaching.
Offerings to BBPW Members: Rise Up leadership Coaching is dedicated to helping individuals establish meaningful career goals and the strategies to achieve them, particularly in times of either planned or imposed transitions. I also work with organizations to strengthen leadership teams and develop ongoing leadership development/mentoring programs.
