Job Title? Communications and Legislative Coordinator
What is Your Primary Role? How long have you worked at CLAS?
I have worked at CLAS for 6 years. As communications coordinator I am responsible for preparing registrations for CLAS professional development events; manage the CLAS website and social media accounts; coordinate CLAS and affiliate emails; and write press releases. As the legislative coordinator I work with the legislature and CLAS members to advocate for public education, plan and coordinate CLAS Legislative Hill Days, and write Legislative Updates during the Legislative Session.
What do you most enjoy about being part of CLAS?
Getting to know our members and what they do on a daily basis, and providing services so they can better serve children in their schools.
What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
At this point in my life, my family is my hobby. Raising a one-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy keep me very busy, but I wouldn’t trade the time I have with my family for anything. When things slow down a bit, I love to watch football and scrapbook memories.
What is your dream vacation?
A Tour of Europe, if I could take a 3-4 month vacation.
Something that might surprise others about you?
There are two things. One, I don’t know how to ride a bike (I’ve tried multiple times at various ages). Two, I don’t like chocolate, and yes, I have tried different types of chocolate and I don’t like any of it.
