My Teaching Philosophy

As an educator, I strive to effectively convey my passion for the industry to each group of students I am fortunate enough to teach so they can apply the knowledge gained in my courses in whatever field they choose to pursue. I believe there are benefits to the knowledge gained in marketing courses that apply to all kinds of personal and professional relationships and a variety of industries. If nothing else, I hope that my enthusiasm shows students that pursuing your passion can lead to a long, fulfilling career and a lifetime of opportunities.

Why I am at NU

Over the years, I’ve hired several students in my previous career in Marketing Communications, and my Northwood University students always set themselves apart with their level of professionalism and ability to hit the ground running. I realized then there was something special about this university. When I decided I would like to make the transition to an academic career, I made it my goal to become a part of this great institution.
