I have a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, a Post-master's Certificate in Higher Education, an M.B.A., and a Bachelor of Arts with a major in English. I have served as a dean as well as an associate dean, in addition to teaching online and on-ground. My primary areas include composition, business administration, college success strategies, and organizational leadership. My research interests include retention initiatives, authentic assessment, and student-centered learning. I am a life-long learner and I truly value the many benefits the online educational environment has to offer.
