About


I look to combine leadership, management, entrepreneurship, organizational behavior, and project management educating experience with over a decade of real world business know-how to create and deliver a dynamic and engaging learning environment that challenges students to explore contemporary business themes. I also focus on embracing technology, real-world examples, and application learning to embed learning outcomes into both the on ground and online classroom environment. I pride myself on a dedicated approach to each student’s success during their university experience and support their preparation for the workplace with an open door policy towards mentorship and advising.
