Lion’s Pride

I am humbled to be given the privilege and honor to continue to serve others in my new role as the President of the Leadership Institute of Nevada (LION). I will strive to foster a community of courageous leaders that remain champions for children and I look forward to creating safe spaces for leaders to be able to share innovative ideas, problem-solve, and take risks to change the educational landscape for the ‘now’, and into the ‘future.’

As leaders we know leadership is such a lonely space to have to navigate. A leader must bear the weight of responsibility for serving others. The Leadership Institute of Nevada (LION) has known this for decades and understands that convening and building a community of leaders is essential to helping leaders to support and learn from each other during the best of times and the most challenging of times. As an alumna of the Leadership Executive Academy Cohort 4, I leaned on my colleagues for insight, perspective, and advice many times. As we enter another decade of leading, LION wants every leader to know that we are launching this newsletter to ‘serve you exclusively’ as a courageous leader; bringing our Alumni Network together to continue to gather and grow as professionals via future leadership summits, roundtables, and social mixers. We will continue to convene the best educational leaders and business and community leaders to learn from each other and collaborate. We are committed to continuing to bring leaders together to resolve current challenges as well. We are so excited about what this next era will bring for our leaders. You are not alone because a lion’s pride is stronger together!
