Ms. Cooper managed and oversaw certification products, delivery operations, department's profit and loss, exam development, accreditation compliance, psychometric competency, vendor contracts/relationships, and reporting.

Prior to ACF, she managed the Business Law and Workers Compensation Sections of The Florida Bar. She was responsible for meeting planning, budgets, and continuing legal education programs as well as providing membership services. During her seven years with The Florida Bar, she gained valuable knowledge in program planning, development, marketing and communication and an appreciation for dedicated volunteer boards.

Before coming to The Florida Bar, Ms. Cooper was an Executive Director with the Leon County Unit of the American Cancer Society, where she specialized in fundraising in six counties and maintained three Boards of Directors along with patient services, income development and grassroots advocacy.

She is a graduate of Florida State University with a B.S. in Communication.
