I have twenty-eight years of broad-based professional experience, with the past eleven years working as a Professor in higher education. I also hold a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame and a J.D. from Valparaiso University.
In my role as an educator, I routinely counseled and mentored students in variety of subjects including history, law, management, marketing and other general business courses. In addition, I have tutored students who have sought to improve their writing skills.
I am comfortable in working high school students, traditional age college students and adult learners as I have teaching experience with each of these groups. Furthermore, I have instructed traditional, accelerated and online courses and have a working knowledge of the requirements needed to excel in each.
