Professional Statement

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 work bringing our students to the workplace, and bringing the workplace to our students is particularly fulfilling and together we are achieving great success in transitioning our many experiential learning opportunities into careers for students. My goal as an administrator is to assist the Dean in establishing Husson throughout the community as a strength and resource to be developed even further.                   

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. -John Quincy Adams
