I am an Educational Effectiveness Project Manager in the office of Academic Programs and Services at California State University, East Bay. My work focuses on university accreditation and improving faculty instruction, curriculum, and assessment. I have a B.S. in Industrial Psychology and an M.S. in Human Resources Management with over 25 years combined experience in corporate education in large Bay Area companies (with a specialty in training trainers) and in college and university instruction at Las Positas College and Cal State East Bay.
I have consulted with a number of Bay Area companies on ways to improve employee performance. I have also consulted with the California State University Chancellor’s office on General Education reform in California. My academic publications and educational conference presentations include a focus on increased relevance and engagement for student learning.
In the BUSN 30 Business Ethics and Society course I instruct, the focus is on students interpreting ethical theories, concepts, and laws in ways that will reinforce choices that line up with their values and best selves.
At the heart of the BUSN 48 course, Human Relations in Business, is honest self-examination and growth in interpersonal areas that will help better reach goals with others.
I enjoy the teaching and learning process and look forward to also learning from the breadth of knowledge and skills each student brings to the learning space.
