Brief biography

I have 20+ years of marketing, sales, and management experience, primarily in the financial services industry., most recently as Vice President of Marketing at Community Credit Union (now Verve) for 10 years.  I'm a UWL alum and earned my MBA at Viterbo, after which I taught as an adjunct at Viterbo and Western Technical College while working full time. 

2019-2020 will be my 5th year at UWL and my primary focus is sales, although I also teach the Principles of Marketing class and Business Communication class. In addition to teaching these classes, I also coach the UWL Eagle Sales Team, coordinate the local competition and advise the UWL Eagle Sales Club (beginning fall 2019). 

I have twin daughters, Bryn is a birth to 3-Deaf and Hard of Hearing teacher in Saint Paul. Bree is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Minnesota in Critical Media Studies in the Communication discipline. 

Making the career change to academics was one of the best decision I've made, I love teaching students about marketing and sales and assisting them in navigating their academic career and job search.  Teaching and coaching in sales provide me the opportunity to see student's growth in the "soft skill" of communicating professionally and become more confident in their ability to express themselves.
