Executive Director, McCree Center for Life Success

Pronouns: He/Him/His

I’m honored to be the founding executive director of the McCree Center for Life Success at Mary Baldwin University.  The Center strives to offer comprehensive wraparound student services in a dynamic hub of centralized, holistic, and personal support for life design and ongoing professional and career preparation for all Mary Baldwin students.  At Mary Baldwin, the McCree team and I will focus on creating partnerships, employment pipelines, and career readiness opportunities for all organizations and companies. 

I have over 22 years of experience in career services and workforce development, including leadership positions at the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Illinois at Chicago.  Before that, I spent 11 years at Northwestern University in various capacities in career services.  Mary Baldwin’s mission of student empowerment, entrepreneurial spirit, and commitment to career readiness is why I’m so proud to be here now.  

Regardless if you live on campus or study online, the McCree Center is here to support you.  

On behalf of the McCree Center leadership team, our new staff, and Mary Baldwin University, welcome and know that your future success is our priority.
