I have an active teacher, advisor, and mentor during my academic career. I have taught courses in an adult degree completion program, undergraduate business, MBA, online, and a variety of general education courses. I have published a number of journal articles and continue an active ongoing research agenda in leadership, management, marketing, emerging markets, and strategy. I also have many years of management experience in manufacturing, business ownership, and customer service. I also believe in working with students, colleagues, and administration to continuously improve all aspects of university operations through teams, committees, and individual efforts.
