My education includes a B.A. in Economics, and two master's degrees: an M.B.A. and an M.S. in International Business. I earned my doctoral degree in international business and wrote my dissertation on the hybridization mechanism of International corporate governance models based on the path dependence and the pareto-optimal theories.

Having worked in a wide variety of countries and cultures, including Japan, the USA and Europe, I bring a unique, multi-cultural perspective. With my students I share my broad professional experience including global management (organizational behaviors, marketing, training and education), cross-cultural interaction and communication issues in organizations, Japanese management science, and the strategic aspects of administration and retailing in an international context.

My professional experience includes teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level as an Assistant Professor of International Business at Juanita College, and three years working for City University of Seattle/VSM in Slovakia. I have also taught at City University of Seattle in Bulgaria. Outside of academia I have experience as a localization advisor, a foreign customer training consultant, an IPO staff, a founder of a small business, a marketing consultant, and as an education program developer. I am also a certified retail sales specialist by the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

When not at work I love karaoke, eating good food, driving cars, hiking, teaching and playing the guitar.  I believe that students and their professor have a respected mutual commitment in learning. Both must share responsibility and work proactively to create a positive learning partnership. I work hard to make sure my students complete my class successfully and with the certainty that they have gained useful information.
