Executive Director of Knowledge to Work (K2W). Responsible for design and implementation of direct assessment competency-based education programs at Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC).

Recently launched new national portal for free CBE, under TAACCCT grant, at: http://highered.org

In October 2014, LFCC received $3,250,000 under a round 4 TAACCCT grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to create Knowledge to Work, a new type of educational search engine and online portal designed to help workers find free and low-cost, credit and non-credit learning resources tied to competencies and credentials, including badges, certificates, and degrees. Occupations at 10 regional employers in healthcare, IT, and advanced manufacturing are targeted. Portfolios, prior learning assessment, apprenticeships, and wrap-around support services are provided through new faculty, career coach, adult basic education, and Workforce Navigator positions. LFCC is partnering with Microsoft and the American Health Information Management Association in this effort.
