An accomplished leadership professional with both teaching and practical experience, I hold advanced degrees in leadership and organizational management. Recognizing that organizations are increasingly dependent on the presence of citizenship behaviors among members, I researched and authored a dissertation entitled Leadership Emotional Intelligence and Organizational Justice: A Correlational Study of Follower Perceptions in American Organizations.

Prior to and during pursuit of my doctorate, I spent nearly 20 years in leadership roles focusing on coaching and development, collaboration and change management, organization development, and strategic planning and decision-making, as well as the facilitation of adult learning in academic and corporate environments.

This powerful combination of academia and practical experience uniquely positions me for success as a consultant, leader, and professor. Colleagues, leaders, team members, and students have described my style as inclusive, engaging, and highly motivating, and their experiences with me as productive and relevant. Whether onsite or virtual, my commitment to high-quality communication and productive collaboration results in the ability to inspire and motivate, while simultaneously driving accountability in myself and those I influence.
