I have been with the National FFA Organization for 16 years, serving in the IT department in a variety of roles. In March, I began serving as the director of IT, after having been an interim in that role for two months. Before this most recent promotion, I served as senior team leader of the Enterprise Systems team, which handles all of the organization's application development and system integration efforts and is responsible for major systems like PeopleSoft, the SharePoint-based Intranet, the SharePoint-based public-facing Website and portal, and CRM. I am also the organization's corporate compliance officer, with major compliance efforts focusing on credit card and other financial data security initiatives to keep personally identifiable data secure for the more than 610,000 student members of FFA and other stakeholders across the country. I received my undergraduate degree from Milligan College in Johnson City, Tenn., and my MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University.
