How I Might Be Able to Assist

I have demonstrated ability in designing student academic programs that build inclusive communities. I have been effective in collaborating with students, faculty, staff, and external university constituencies. I am skilled in the development of academic experientially-driven programs, human resource management, and maintaining departmental budgets. I possess a high level of interpersonal aptitude and problem-solving ability and I am well-versed in outcomes assessment specific to student academic programs and student retention.

My academic experience both inside and outside the classroom can bring a different academic perspective to students at all levels and in all formats.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions in these areas.

Professional Projects or Initiatives of Interest

Currently, I am actively involved in community projects with Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts small businesses and non-profit organizations. My concentrated efforts bring graduate and undergraduate students to these organizations to provide working marketing plans and growth strategies that include all management and marketing functions.
