Biography

I have worked in telecommunications, manufacturing, construction, and in the Health Insurance industry. My primary responsibilities were in Human Resources but have worked in many different capacities in other areas such as marketing, operations, customer service, purchasing, quality assurance, and probably a few that weren't included in the job description but needed to get done. I also offer consulting services in Human Resources providing expertise in employment law, performance, leadership, management, and training and development.

I have always loved teaching which is a big reason I moved into Human Resources which allowed me to offer teaching to adult learners in the work environment, then the consulting allowed me to branch out into the community. Now, being specifically in education I have the great opportunity of working with you!

Along with my online adjunct teaching I work with individuals in personal and professional mentoring, and leadership development. This is a very rewarding role that intertwines well with my joy of teaching. 

On a personal note, as a family we enjoy being productive within our community; volunteering in a variety of venues and participating in local events. I enjoy spending time with family and the outdoors, I can usually be found out on a run with our boxer, Lola, or on a family bike ride.  And, since moving to south Florida the beach will be in our future...and probably Mickey's house.
