As an advisor, Lee enjoys working with his students closely in order to help them to achieve their goals. He acts in the capacity of advisor to student government, the Hospitality Association and Young Republican clubs at Husson. Lee also was the assistant coach of Husson's 5-time conference championship softball team, and now serves as the faculty representative to the football team. Lee has always been highly interested in helping students gain knowledge in the business world and hospitality industries through experiential learning. He began his teaching career at Husson as an adjunct professor before joining the faculty full time in 2008. His personal interests include family life with his wife and two children, hiking, kayaking and the Red Sox.
My teaching philosophy is simple: To bring energy and engagement to my students during every class and to help them exceed their expectations in their learning experience both on and off the campus. My goal as an administrator is to assist the Dean in establishing Husson throughout Northern New England as a strength and resource to be developed even further.
A leader is more than just the title, it is about inspiring greatness in others.
