Welcome to my homepage and portfolio, where students and colleagues will find important information under the Topics and Helpful Links pages. You can also find a little bit About Me and explore some of my Projects.
I teach campus and online undergraduate and graduate business courses at several universities while working full-time for well-known paper company. I earned my Ph.D. in Business Administration-Management from Northcentral University, Prescott Valley, AZ. My dissertation was entitled Dimensions of Purchasing Social Responsibility in Sustainable Supply Chain Organizations. I earned a BS in Enviromental Science and an MBA from Troy University, Troy, AL, and Phenix City, AL. I am a Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) and a Project Management Professional (PMP). Read my CV here.
I attended graduate school as an adult working full-time, so I have first-hand experience and understand the challenges facing adult learners who must juggle home, work, and school. I was a distance-learning student for part of graduate school, and I am well-acquainted with the commitment this modality requires and the level of communication necessary for success.
My work in supply chain operations in the paper company allows me to bring a holistic and practical mindset to curriculum development and instruction. As a leader at work and school, I am responsible for building and shaping the skill sets of those around me. I believe there is a need for individuals such as myself, with both business and academic credentials, to take a leadership role in colleges and universities, which are likewise tasked to bridge the gap between business and academia.
