Director of Membership & Business Development
AR, GA, IA, LA, KY, MO, MS, NC, SC, VA, WV and Int’l Schools
Dave has truly “done it all” at independent schools. Since he joined our team in 2012, his nearly two decades’ experience in schools has strengthened his work with – and on behalf of – schools.
Starting in 1993, Dave worked as dorm parent, coach, English teacher, director of admission, dean of students, and assistant head of school (responsible for enrollment management and fund-raising) at Christchurch School, St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School, and Stuart Hall, all located in Virginia. He has also used his experience in community-building and education in serving as general manager of an adaptive reuse, commercial real estate development project in Staunton, Virginia; in that role, he oversaw the renovation and marketing to promote and align the company’s objectives with broader community goals for the city’s original high school building. Dave holds a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Washington College and a master’s of education from the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education.
