“I put my 23 years of industry experience to work helping others understand how to manage an array of responsibilities in their fields. Behind every student is a group of volunteers, staff, or community depending on me to give their managers and leaders current, relevant, and accurate information. The highlight of every class is when I see my students using the skills I have taught them to make a difference in the lives of those they serve.”
