Director, Detroit Career Center, Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit, Detroit, MI

As a Detroit-area nonprofit professional, over the past 23 years I have had multiple responsibilities for the development, operation and management of a variety of programs and services. These include workforce development services, homeless services, youth services, mental health and behavioral research, managing employees, and developing outcome-based programming utilizing best practices.

For the past two and a half years, I have been the Director of Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit’s Detroit Career Center. My current responsibilities include leadership and management of diverse behavioral health services programming as well as workforce development programming with an emphasis on customer-focused outcomes. Key responsibilities include identifying service needs and gaps, developing and implementing new and expanded services and strategies to meet those service needs, and providing management and direction for the Detroit Career Center.

Throughout my tenure in human service, I have enjoyed a reputation as a tireless and aggressive advocate for my respective organizations and their customers.
