My work inspiration...

I love when my students tell me what I taught them was applied to their own life. I've had many of my students come back to me telling me how they changed their life to be in line with their potential and passion because of what we learned in class. One student of mine left pharmaceutical sales and the legal profession to become a successful entrepreneur. Another student of mine took his strategic plan from class and landed a VP position with one of the largest aerospace engineering firms in the country. Another student of mine took some of his exercises and pitched his way into successful career at Under Armour.

I am a first-generation college graduate. My parents' first language was not English. I was a single-parent for 26 years and am now married to a non-American citizen.
