Hi, I'm Gregg.
WHERE I COME FROM
Born in Corry, PA and growing up with a family on the move, I've lived in various states and foreign countries, including Belgium, Denmark and Japan. Thanks to my education and work abroad, I'm fluent in Portuguese and very familiar with Brazilian culture, and also have some command of spoken German, Russian and French. I believe in giving back to the community and have volunteered time at my local church and worked on construction crews with Habitat for Humanity.
When I'm not building or teaching, I enjoy spending my time camping, hiking, snowshoeing & skiing. Member of the Deschutes River Conservancy and Oregon National Desert Association.
LESSONS FROM A LONG CAREER
With a professional career that spans over three decades, including 27 years with General Motors, I bring both practical knowledge and life experiences that will be applied to my role as a board member.
I was a successful Project Manager and Business Systems Analyst, applying my expertise to design & implement integrated solutions to enhance business knowledge, efficiency and productivity. My automotive career has taken me overseas, including a number of years working in Europe to develop distribution, logistics, policies & procedures, as well as building organizational infrastructure for establishing new dealer networks and development strategies.
My educational background is diverse and includes an MBA from Northwood University DeVos Graduate School of Management, a BA from Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA and a HS diploma from Escola Graduada de São Paulo in Brasil.
Rebuilding Our Foundations For Better Education.
School shutdowns and the lack of full-time, in-person learning have been devastating to our children and their futures, but the problems with education pre-exist the pandemic. It is incumbent upon leaders to consider the complete picture, accurately assess the key areas for improvement, and propose solutions to increase outcomes for all students.
