I envision living in a world filled with open books, open source, open hearts, and open minds in which diversity is embraced and creativity flourishes.

As a long time CPA turned online professor, my life was transformed upon completing my dissertation entitled "An Investigation of the Factors that Influence Faculty and Student Acceptance of Mobile Learning in Online Higher Education."

I beamed with pride when my committee chair Dr. Marlyn K. Littman called my statistical analysis pioneering. It brought me full circle back to my number-crunching roots inspiring me to earn a second master’s in Business Intelligence.

I plan to continue my studies of contemporary issues related to teaching, learning, and technology and help undergrad and grad students achieve their academic and career goals. As a lifelong learner I also plan on continuing my quest to understand the problems posed by mobile and micro learning formats and find innovative ways of helping people maximize the benefits these emerging technologies afford.

  • CREATE

    I love to create and my work as a freelancer, student, and educator has made me quite versatile. I'm equally adept at producing technical, informational, instructional, editorial, or scholarly materials using a wide variety of multimedia tools.

  • LEARN

    Whether teaching or creating, I make it a point to learn something new everyday. Keeping my skills sharp and staying current are of utmost importance. I excel at solving problems and finding answers.
