Subjects: Business

I started my career at NIC in 2005 and in the years since I have taught a wide variety of courses in the areas of marketing, management and entrepreneurship. In 2012 I took over my current role as department chair for the School of Business. I have enjoyed the challenge of leading the department through a myriad of opportunities and challenges while still maintaining a small teaching role in our program (I currently teach BUS-150 in the fall semester and BUS-452 in the winter).

I have a real passion for investing my time, knowledge and belief in other people and a career in higher education allows me to do just that in a number ways everyday. I also believe in the on-going connections that the School of Business has with our alumni, other community members and business professional in our communities and our department has worked diligently to create a vision of a vibrant learning community connecting our current students with these individuals. 

We have hundreds of alumni members making significant economic and social contributions in our communities and we are immensely proud of the value they are adding. Finally, it is my privilege to be a faculty representative on the Board of the NIC Foundation allowing me to view our organization in broader terms as it relates to student scholarships and bursaries, as well as, NICs long-term capital and operational funding needs.
