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 goal as an administrator is to assist the Dean in establishing Husson throughout New England as the university of choice for incoming business students and as the professional choice for employers to seeking young leaders in all areas of management!

A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way. -John C. Maxwell
