To the students of CWU, I bring a combined 12 years of experience in retail management, sales, IT, (Hollywood Video, U.S. Cellular) and small business ownership (Johnny’s Cakes). I am passionate about education and empowering students to succeed, and privileged to be in the position to help shape future business leaders, managers, and IT professionals. Whether I am teaching Business Communications and Report Writing, Web Fundamentals, or Intro to IT, my unique experiences allow me to provide students with industry insight and demonstration of the skills and concepts discovered during instruction. It is my goal to foster the best possible learning environment – online and in the classroom – and make education a positive, enjoyable, and worthwhile experience for all students.
