Before becoming a full-time member of the faculty, I spent several years as a vice president of enrollment management at two different colleges. I use this experience in my research focused on marketing of higher education. I also investigate innovations in marketing education. In the classroom I highlight active learning where students engage in the material by applying course concepts to practical marketing situations. I further refine my skills through my involvement with the Marketing Management Association.
