- Management, Instructor
I began teaching at the undergraduate level over 25 years ago in my hometown of Chicago teaching technically oriented classes (Telecommunications, Information technology, etc) and workforce management (telemarketing, international and management, etc.) subjects. Besides UNO I have taught at Loyola University in Chicago and guest lectured at DePaul University, Creighton University and the Harvard Business School. I have worked as a division head, general manager, executive director and corporate sr. vice president, for companies like IBM, American Express, First Data Resources and several non-profits. With multiple disciplinary experience, I have been in finance and accounting, operations and technology, sales and support environments as well as consulting and public speaking. I founded a leadership training and consulting company specializing in strategy and resilience.This broad background prepares me to see a challenge or an opportunity for what it is not for what a particular discipline might influence me to believe. I have a wonderful family including two children living in Memphis, Tn. and have a fondness for salsa dancing and hitting a golf ball as far and as straight as I can.
