I have a challenging teaching
style that inspires critical thinking.


Teaching, professional development, and helping people advance their careers is a passion of mine. I have been teaching courses at universities since 2003 in both undergraduate and graduate programs via face-to-face, online, and hybrid or blended learning instructional formats.

In addition, I consult businesses and organizations on many topics, as well as host workshops related to social media and resume preparation. It is very rewarding when students realize the value of their learning and that the "tough love" they received during my class gave them the confidence to succeed.

Teaching Philosophy
Retention of knowledge is best accomplished through hands-on, practical experience; self-study and research; and mentorship. Students must be in a challenging environment that pushes them to new levels of critical thinking using real-life business situations, while encouraging peer-to-peer learning to drive engagement.
