With 25 years experience as a practicing CPA, financial and marketing executive, I bring a practitioner's orientation to business scholarship.  I believe students who are engaged in their studies learn best. I do my utmost to make the classroom a participative environment promoting learning for all.  My students often learn from activities like case studies, simulations, cooperative problem solving and presentations.  Doing so helps develop the analytical, teamwork, and application skills business professionals need to excel.  I am delighted to be part of the AU community. You will often find me on campus and I hope you stop to visit.
