ABHES Welcomes New Staff Member


It is my pleasure to welcome Christy Baily-Byers to the ABHES family.  Christy will fill a new position, Distance Education Specialist, created in response to the growing number of programs being offered by distance delivery. 

Christy holds a Master of Business Administration from Nova University and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication/Public Relations from the University of Delaware. Having begun her professional career in accreditation, working for the Accrediting Commission of the Association of Independent Colleges and Schools (now ACICS), she has primarily worked in the field of education for over 20 years. Currently, Christy serves as a lecturer at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas, where she has taught since 2005.  Previously she held similar positions at other colleges and universities, including Texas Woman’s University (TWU) and the University of Hartford. During her tenure at TWU, Christy created and taught business management courses online. She then created and implemented an online component at SMU to enrich the internship course allowing students to intern around the world while participating in a virtual classroom

Christy officially begins with ABHES in January, following completion of her teaching responsibilities this semester. I know that you will join me in welcoming Christy to this exciting new position.
