I am a new instructor at North Island College, where I will be teaching economics.

Prior to my new role at NIC, I was at Northern Lights College teaching various courses in the business department, such as Financial Accounting 1 and 2, Intermediate Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and Corporate Finance.

I have a BA in finance from Kennesaw State University in Georgia, as well as a master’s degree in economics from the University of Victoria. I completed the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at Vancouver Community College, where I am currently enrolled in the Online Learning and Teaching certificate program.

My areas of interests are: accounting, economics, finance, socioeconomic and community development, adult learning, online education and research, coaching, mentoring and lifelong learning.

I am an avid tennis follower and have coached players of different ages and levels in the US and Canada. I pursued my education in the US while on a tennis scholarship. I speak Arabic and French fluently and teach French occasionally. In my free time, I like to read, travel, watch tennis and work out.
