Why I Teach

I want students to have the most useful learning opportunities. To this end, I make my courses relevant to their personal experiences, organized so they know what is expected, interactive so they are engaged, and challenging in terms of the quality of their work and the standards set by the university and myself.

I consider myself a professional learner who enjoys helping others understand concepts and practices that will help them be successful in their careers. Sharing my business experience and my academic pursuits with students is very rewarding.
