In 2005 I was hired by SchoolDude as a Client Adviser. Growing up in the tech support and implementation side of the business, I gained a unique appreciation for the challenges and opportunities facing facility operations professionals at schools. In 2009 the Dude created a Success Management team, where I was fortunate to lead a small team responsible for engaging clients, assessing their opportunities, and helping to maximize their investment. In 2012 started wearing two big hats - Community Engagement Manager and Chief Data Dude. Today I'm very excited to be managing our Client Support team. My passion lies in leading this team of legendary support professionals, connecting peers in SchoolDude Nation, creating a valuable Community experience, and telling stories with data that inspire success in Facility Operations.

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Professional Development Webinar Series on February 25th, with Bill Sanford from the Bell Leadership Institute, leading a session on Managing Change. This Professional Development Webinar Series is in response to you, Dude Nation, asking for more resources to help you grow professionally. We listened to you ask for more leadership sessions at SchoolDude University in Myrtle Beach and San Diego. We watched clients respond and grow at Survivor Tour stops, listening to how peer leaders overcame similar challenges. Challenges that feel unique to your institution, but most of the time are the same ones your peers face when aiming to drive continuous improvement.
We consistently look for opportunities to fill this need and deliver resources to help you become better leaders and make a positive impact in the lives of those around you. The purpose of this series is to give you the opportunity to be a leader and an agent of positive change. We study success in education facilities and operations and one of the cornerstones we see in the most successful institutions is leadership and the ability to inspire. This series is not about SchoolDude software, that's not the secret to success. Strong leaders are the key to success.
We plan to have a Professional Development webinar with a featured speaker once a quarter. Look for information on our Q2 Professional Development webinar, which will focus on Disaster Preparedness and Safety. You can view upcoming webinars and events of all types on the SchoolDude Community Events page.
