  • My Story

    I never planned to be a University Professor, but the Lord has different plans for me! Successfully working in my consulting firm, state, and federal governments positions and within the private sector, one day I was called to help a friend, and in that moment, everything changed. God really showed me my way and I cannot be happier. Having the opportunity to wake up in the morning knowing that you can impact the life of someone is a blessing. 

    Favorite Course to Teach: My favorite courses to teach are Strategic Management and International Business. As a business consultant the plans that the organizations had were very good, but the implementation is the challenge. The strategies to make that happen can change the course of that business.
