I have been with the university for 38 years, and can say that she I have seen it all! After teaching for a few years, I later went back to school and completed 18 of information systems classes post-graduate. I primarily teach information systems and computer skills on campus (Daytona campus), Management, Entrepreneurship and E-Commerce and I also teach information system classes for the World Wide campus.

Lately, in the last couple of years I have been involved with trying to bring an entrepreneurial program to Riddle, teaching the only entrepreneurship and E-Commerce classes. I am an advisor to the NBAA (National Business Aviation Association) where students compete and do all kinds of cool things including touring Gulfstream Aerospace and attending large aviation conferences.

My research interests are in higher education and technology, distributed teams to study online VS face-to-face teams, emotional intelligence, and a variety of information systems topics. I oversees business planning for students on campus and works with the Engineering Faculty to try to commercialize their new technology. Recent research is in technology in the classroom of the future.
