While at LSUS, I have taught every level of college course: freshman all the way through to MBA students. I served as faculty with study abroad students on Germany trip multiple times. Additionally, I've taught at least nine different preps in face-to-face and online formats and I'm looking forward to my tenth.

What's the best advice that you ever received?
Everything in life, at the end of the day, is really about people and relationships!
What's the best advice that you could give your students?
Every good thing in life, including education, should never be attained by taking a shortcut -- put in the time and the effort and the reward you reap will be far beyond your wildest expectations.
What is the one book you think everyone should read?
Can't think of just one!
What qualities make someone particularly successful in business?
Understanding people is one of the biggest assets when leading, managing and working with people. In business, it's something that we've come around to understanding and accepting relatively late in the game, but I think that it has always been true and will continue to always be true.
What do you think is the biggest challenge that people in business face today?
Even though we've somewhat come to understand the importance of people in business, this has not yet become commonplace in business culture.
