As an educator, I believe in the institution and foundation of education. I recognize that by doing my job well, I can make a difference one student at a time. Knowing that my students leave my class understanding not only the course objectives, but are also able to share real life experiences and recognize the value of what they are learning in the real world is very motivating. It is my goal to take every opportunity to exceed student expectations, while advancing their understanding of curriculum. My teaching philosophy is derived from my lifelong love of learning, my goal of sharing that love with my students, and my desire to help students answer the question "why" in the subjects of finance, accounting and management. Answering the important question of "why" is embodied in my goal of helping students to understanding difficult concepts and applying them to the real world situations. As an experienced Chief Financial Officer, I have a very strong background in how the business world actually operates and my joy in teaching is to help students marry the theoretical world of business with the practical realities of what they'll find when they work in the real world of business.
