Planner Profiles is a series of stories from APA members on how they got where they are — sharing their career path, experience, and thought leadership. Planners explore their education, who influenced them, and APA's role in helping set them on course to their current position.
Planner Profiles help you see yourself in the variety of occupations that employ planners in the public and private sectors and in jobs that don’t have planner in the title.
Be inspired, take direction, and make the next step.
