About me


I established NextChapter Consulting after more than two decades working with associations and organizations in the education and ed tech space.

My experience includes federal and state legislative advocacy for the College Board, communications and outreach for Project Tomorrow, external relations for the U.S. Congress’ Web based Commission and sponsorship , partnership, global outreach, and strategy for CoSN.


I formed NextChapter to continue my work and provide services to a select group of clients who share my commitment to improve education and transform the learning experience through technology.


With cancellations and postponements of conference and events, associations and their corporate partners are working to identify new ways of working together.  Hope the recent blog will help you navigate the new reality.
