I currently live in Nashville TN with my husband, three cats, and two dogs. We have five grown daughters, and we are all originally from CA. When I am not teaching or working, I love to explore the outdoors and music scene of Nashville with my family. I have a passion for technology and higher education and strive to find creative and innovative ways to enhance the student experience and positively impact student success.
My professional background includes a broad blend of operational and financial leadership experience from both the private and public sectors in several very complex organizations and industries. I have an extensive background in healthcare serving in key leadership roles in several large healthcare systems. I am proud of my 25 years of experience teaching in several colleges and universities – teaching is my true love.
I am a Certified Public Accountant in the states of TN and CA. I hold a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership for Change from Fielding Graduate University, an MBA from California State University, Sacramento, and a BS Degree in Business/Accounting from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
