I have taught in the SMRT Department since 2003, served as Graduate Coordinator since 2010, and been privileged to serve as chair since 2014. After graduating from undergrad, worked in the corporate world for the Marriott Corporation, which has influenced my applied teaching philosophy in Sport Management. In my time at Springfield, I have served on local and national board based on my interest in governance and sport development. These experiences have also influenced my academic/scholarly interests and activities in leadership, strategy, and organizational capacity.
