Around the World in 21 Days: Why Do We Work?

Why do we work? This is an interesting question. Some work purely for money. Some work to belong to something bigger than themselves. If I look back on my career, I have always worked to help people. During my Sports medicine days, I helped student athletes gain access to optimal health care. When I worked at a certification body, we helped protect the public by making sure health care providers had a minimum level of competency. Right now, I am embarking on a 21 day journey to work with organizations to create and deliver valid and precise assessments using modern testing theory – this makes me happy.  

Happy to know that the sacrifices I am making are going to making this world a better place. In the end, we don’t want bad tests to hurt good people.

At Assessment Systems, we believe one of us isn’t as smart as all of us. My first stop on this journey: Washington, DC, where I will spend a day collaborating with my colleague Kat Stanley. After that, off the to Middle East in search of assessments that need to be Smarter, Faster, and Fairer!

I hope you continue to follow me on this journey. Until we talk again!

I am an assessment and certification professional with a focus on helping our partners implement best practices to make their testing programs stronger. I began my career as an Athletic Trainer, which led me to working for a decade at that field's Board of Certification, managing the development of an item bank system, many teams of subject matter experts, and several high-volume certification programs.
