It has been my pleasure teaching in the Marketing Department since 1987.  This is absolutely the best job in the world.  Being a WSU grad, I love seeing the next generation of Shockers achieve the first step in their professional career which is a degree from the Barton School.  I base my teaching on “what’s happening in the world of marketing” and my experiences working with companies as a marketing research consultant and management trainer.  In addition to my role as a faculty member, I also serve as the Barton School’s Director of Student and Community Initiatives which means I lead student and community outreach programs for the school.  I am also a WSU Recruitment Fellow which allows me to practice marketing all the time.  Finally, in my “free time” I conduct seminars on emotional intelligence, overcoming negativity in the workplace, and communication skills for the Center for Management Development.

Research Interest: Emotional Intelligence, Higher Education Marketing
