Dr. Wimbish has designed and taught leadership courses, presented at leadership conferences across the nation, and published a guide to student leadership. Her recent book, Leadership Wisdom for All Generations, is being used for professional development across the nation with a variety of populations.

At CVC, she led the college to recognition as a military friendly campus, established several Early College High Schools, and initiated a Minority Male program to influence positively college youth. The college’s Phi Theta Kappa Chapter won the title of Most Distinguished Chapter in the world, contributing to Wimbish receiving its prestigious Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award.
