I have inherited an association with incredible advocacy success, exceptional professional development opportunities, and functional relationships with other agencies, institutions, and associations that have enhanced the role of Career and Technical Education in Pennsylvania.

As I move forward in leading PACTA towards even more success. I would like to share with you my priorities, commitments, and vision for PACTA.

    • Collaborate to enhance the role of CTE
