This blog provides a venue for me to share big and small ideas, perspectives, and concerns -- and for YOU to respond. A partial list of what my posts will cover: ways we're trying to improve (see the Sept. 11 posting "3 ways Rec&Ed will improve your customer experience this fall"), new program ideas, stories about special people involved in Rec&Ed, and the occasional strange situation or fact about Rec&Ed.
A little about me...I joined the staff at Rec&Ed in July, 2012. I came to the organization from Washtenaw County government, where I'd worked in Public Health for 16 years. The type of work I did for the county -- program planning and implementation, community coalitions, grant writing and coordination, supervising employees and managing budgets -- was a great foundation for entering the Rec&Ed world. I've learned a ton in my first year as director, and will continue to do so every day. I live in Ann Arbor and my two kids are enrolled in AAPS.
