Concorde Portland Campus President

It is my honor and pleasure to welcome incoming students to Concorde Career College. I feel privileged, along with the staff and faculty, to be a part of your educational journey.  I believe that education is a transformative experience and an amazing investment in your future and that is why I have been a part of higher education for many years.  The team at Concorde wants to support and help our students thrive and become successful healthcare professionals.  We do this through experiential learning, engaged and experienced faculty and staff, and high touch with every student.

I chose to be a part of the Concorde Community because our college values supporting invested students in reaching their respective career goals through a quality education.  I am inspired daily by our student and staff, but there are three days that excite me most:

1) Orientation day – Seeing students take that first big step toward a new career is amazing 

2)Graduation day – Watching students cross the stage after working hard and persevering is phenomenal

3) First day in a new career – this is what it is all about!

Wherever you are in your academic journey, please know that we are here to help.
