Professor of the Practice - Marketing - Perdue School of Business - Salisbury University  

Empowering others to follow their dreams, I find delight in inspiring others to achieve goals outside their self-imposed limits. Whether it's working with peers, college students, or underprivileged youth, seeing people do something they once thought impossible brings me joy. Inspired by strong mentors throughout my life like my grandmother, parents, teachers, and peers, my behavior is a reflection of their influence.

One of my students described graduating from college as “exciting... yet terrifying.” How do educators prepare students to succeed?

My goal is to create an experiential learning environment that connects students with real-world learning opportunities. I promise my students at least one new item for their resume for each class they take with me. It is imperative to begin transitioning students to think critically and learn to work independently. Through projects in my classes, students learn that sometimes plans do not work as expected and that it takes creative thinking to prevent problems and conjure solutions. My classroom provides a safe environment for students to attempt new things, potentially fail, and still pass the class. Through structured self-exploration, networking, and real-world challenges, students gain the confidence necessary to create success.

Bringing practical skills to the classroom, my goal is to make the classroom as real as possible. Often, students work with small businesses and non-profit organizations in our community. Some of those clients include:

  • Women Supporting Women
  • Brooke M – Medical Fund
  • Kids of Honor
  • Relay for Life
  • Wicomico Mentoring Project
  • Safe Ride – SU
  • Holly Community
  • Surf Rider Foundation
  • Life Crisis
  • Wounded Warriors
  • Village of Hope
  • Christian Shelter
  • Pemberton Elementary School
  • Salisbury’s Promise
  • Maryland Food Bank
  • Dove Point
  • Seton Center
  • Catholic Charities
  • And Many more...

 


Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
