> I would like to add my name to the list for consideration as a Co-Chair of the working group. 
> As a lifelong educator with 15+ years as a teacher, admin, tech leader and instructional coach across the PreK to Higher Ed spectrum, I have seen first hand the need for an interoperable record of learning consisting of skill mastery, authentic assessment, and verifiable documentation that can empower individuals to own their data and connect them to opportunity. 
> Unfortunately, I haven't been able to attend the weekly VC-EDU meetings on a regular basis because I am still teaching a course at that time. I keep up with the meeting minutes, recordings, and work of the group and appreciate the community focused approach to collective efforts. My current teaching obligations end at the end of this semester which means I will be able to attend regular meetings and would love the chance to work closely with the other co-chair to continue momentum around use cases, implementation, and real-world applications. Although I do not possess a deep technical skill set, I believe my collaborative experience developing curriculum and building systems of learning, coupled with a practical approach to transferring theory into practice, presents a unique value proposition for the role of co-chair.. 
> Since joining the Learning Economy Foundation, I have taken a deep dive into the world of open data and standards by supporting the growth of a digital global ecosystem that endeavors to enable economic mobility for all. As the Secretary of the IEEE Interoperable Learner Records working group and lead facilitator of the Open Skills Network Skills Collaboratives <https://www.openskillsnetwork.org/skills-collaboratives>, I see the value in global collaborative initiatives and have learned processes and systems that move our collective goals forward. Additionally, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the World Bank to support the Blockchain for Education <https://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/edutech/brief/blockchain-for-education-community> Workshop Series and Community of Practice to bring education, awareness and social infrastructure to our shared digital future.
