Bio

A graduate of College of Charleston (BA) and Southern Wesleyan (MS), I spent 12 years in the hospitality industry before being recruited by JWU, thereby changing my career to education. My industry experience was focused on restaurant management and wine.

I have a passion for fine dining service and wine education, service and study. This passion led me to co-author a service book, “The Professional Server” published by Prentice Hall, which is now in its third edition.

Student success is very important to me in the classroom. I hope to set a good example of work ethic, define specific learning objectives, and have high standard for excellence. I try to create a real-life learning environment, teach the importance of accountability and encourage confidence in all students so they can recognize their unique abilities.
