Personal Statement:

With 3 of my family members being the beneficiaries of Cooper’s free education, I feel a strong obligation to dedicate my volunteer energy to apply my business skills to serve my Alma Mater at the strategic and tactical levels to restore its tradition of free higher education.

I have been focusing my time and energy outside of work on causes that matter to me at different stages of my life, e.g., helped career-minded women and the next generation take up golf for business and for life between 2003 and 2011.

You have my utmost commitment to fully participate and collaborate with the stakeholders in the Cooper community if elected Alumni Trustee. I look forward to your support.
