College of Management and Technology
I have been teaching at the graduate level for about 15 years now, most recently at Walden University where I teach in PhD in Management program.
My business background is in product development, manufacturing, supply chain, and marketing for a Fortune 500 company, as well as in government and health care industries. I spent just over 20 years at Nike, Inc., where I worked in a variety of project management roles in HR (training and development) and IT. I led a number of interesting e-learning efforts at Nike, as well as quite a few technology implementations, some of them global in nature. I have a Master’s degree in Educational Technology from Pepperdine University. I also have a Project Management Professional (PMP) credential from the Project Management Institute, and a Doctorate in Management from George Fox University.
My research thus far has focused on project teams, especially distributed team challenges and best practices, as well as organizational culture and change. I have published articles in the Journal of Teaching in International Business and the International Journal of Knowledge, Culture, and Change Management. I have also presented at a variety of local, regional, and global PMI conferences. Finally, I published an edited book titled “Distributed Team Collaboration – Emerging Tools and Practices” for IGI Global Publishing in 2011.
