LinkIt! Co-Founder and Executive Chairman
“Over the years, we have learned that the process is as important as the product and we will always invest in our clients’ growth. Data is not just about numbers and charts. It is an analytical framework in which one can tell a story. It requires people working with one another to achieve a common goal.”
LinkIt! CEO & President
“Data has been the driving force in my 20+ years in education. As a former classroom teacher, the strategic use of data was integral to my students' success. Later, as Director of Curriculum, LinkIt allowed me to scale my district's data initiatives and engage diverse stakeholders in objective and purposeful analytical conversations. Now, in my role at LinkIt, our team is proud to collaborate with, learn from, and empower countless teachers and administrators to leverage data with great fidelity.”
LinkIt! Chief Academic Officer
“Our technology and services team is second to none. We believe in continuous product innovation, but always strive to maintain maximum scalability and an intuitive user experience. When it comes to the security and uptime of our mission-critical data systems, there can be no compromises or shortcuts. We are single-mindedly dedicated to delivering unprecedented value for all stakeholders in improved student achievement.”
LinkIt! Chief Technology Officer
“From my earliest days as a teacher, I was constantly looking for ways to use objective data to measure student outcomes to help inform and impact my instruction. The LinkIt! solution is designed to make that easy for teachers and administrators. Our team’s relentless dedication to client consultation, customer service, and product development are driving forces in making data actionable and impactful for all stakeholders.”
Chief Client Officer
“In over 25 years in education, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of schools, both as an educator and as an independent consultant. I have also worked with many assessment tools and data platforms, but I joined LinkIt! because no company has a deeper understanding of the fact that building a great product is only a piece of the puzzle. Without a firm commitment to delivering a best-in-class support and professional development model, even the best products can fall short of expectations.”
Sr. VP of Professional Services & Special Programs
“Being an enthusiast for student outcomes, data was at the heart of my every decision as a teacher, principal, and leader. When the opportunity came to work at a company paving the way for holistic, outcomes-based decision making, I was thrilled. Seeing LinkIt’s support structure in action, I am delighted to be part of an incredible team truly helping educators, and, as an extension, driving excellence for students.”
