My education and work experience is varied, but is always about BUSINESS: college teaching, corporate training, strategic planning, business development (build, grow, exit), travel & event planning, etc. I've had the opportunity to teach in several colleges, a high school, even a maximum security prison. I’ve done training and development work for many non-profits and businesses (MicroSoft, Business Genetics, Monarch Ski Resort, ASI Construction, etc. as well as Departments of Education, School Districts, Tribes); started, built, and sold two businesses; developed and delivered events serving 200 to 2,000 attendees. Plus I’ve done all the other beginning-life jobs (office assistant, waitress, bartender, babysitter.) Because I’ve learned good business practices through a great education and also practiced business at the ground level, I’ve gained wonderful real world experience to share which brings academic principles to life for you, my students. Good learning happens when topics are relevant, work is rigorous, and the application is “real”. We all win when you learn more, better! Besides teaching and learning, travel is my passion. I've been to many major US cities, several states, Mexico and Europe. I enjoy learning about others (lives, work, cultures, food), listening to local live music, reading great books, watching good movies, and attending concerts and Broadway Theatre. I have three grown sons (all D1 athletes), two lovely daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren.
