Bio

My background is in the hospitality industry where I held a variety of positions, from my first role as a Night Auditor to a position of Director of Operations for a full-service Sheraton resort.

My industry experience was focused in the area of hotel operations. I spent over 12 years in the industry prior to changing my career to education.

I am a graduate of Johnson & Wales University, with a master’s degree in Global Business Leadership and a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management.

I enjoy sharing my experience with students and providing them with the support they need to be successful. I have been a Faculty Leader for more than 14 Study Abroad programs. I love traveling with students while they learn about new cultures and gain an understanding of cultural differences.
