Bio

A graduate of North Adams State College and Johnson & Wales University, I spent 17 years in industry prior to changing my career to education.

Most of my industry experience was focused in the areas of fine dining and beverage operations. I have managed all aspects of restaurant front-of-the-house and have developed a passion for hospitality and guest satisfaction. Interim time was spent working for a wholesale beverage distributor representing a diverse portfolio of wine and spirits.

My past work experience has prepared me for my position with Johnson & Wales University. My focus at JWU has been directed towards beverage education. I strive towards student-centered learning in a nurturing environment, with high expectations and clearly-defined learning objectives.

I challenge my students to succeed in and out of the classroom. In an attempt to produce lifelong learners, I model a systematic and creative approach to learning and accomplishing goals. My endeavor is to inspire future beverage professionals.
