I have been at Bloomsburg University for twenty years. I hold both a Ph.D. and an M.S. from Penn State. I hold an M.B.A. from Shippensburg University and Graduate Certificates from both Lehigh University and George Washington University. My teaching and research interests are in sales and business ethics. I have also taken teams to compete at the National Collegiate Sales Competition at Kennesaw State University and the International Collegiate Sales Competition (ICSC) at Florida State University.
With the BU team's top ten finish in November 2015 at the ICSC, BU finished in the top ten universities for three consecutive years. In 2018 I had a student make the third round (top 16) at NCSC. In 2019 we were Fourth place team at NCSC and I had a student place Second overall. I have also won the University Teaching Award in 2019.
My passion is helping my students begin a career, particularly in sales, where they excel. I enjoy hearing about and supporting their career success.
