What does your Bio say about you?

I recently had to compose a Bio to post as a presenter for an upcoming National Webinar event. As I sat to reduce my career experiences to one paragraph relative to the upcoming presentation, I went for less is more:

Sheila LeBoeuf-Guidry is currently the Project Administrator of the Louisiana School Turnaround Specialist Program for the Louisiana Department of Education. Ms. Guidry is responsible for the facilitation of the first two cohorts of candidates through the University of Virginia program and the development and implementation of a Regional Provider Program to build capacity within the state. Ms. Guidry has previously served as a public school teacher, master teacher, principal, district grant coordinator, and state department project administrator. She received her B.S. and M.Ed. from Nicholls State University and is a Louisiana certified K-12 Principal, Supervisor, and Superintendent.

How would your bio read?
