I have experience working in large financial institutions as a FINRA licensed Financial Advisor. My teaching style is a hands-on experiential approach that incorporates my industry experiences with course material in all the finance courses I teach here at the university from the sophomore foundations finance course all the way up to our Finance Senior Seminar.

Extra Curricular Roles

I am the faculty advisor for our JWU finance student organization, The Finance and Investment Academy (FIA).
I maintain a LinkedIn page devoted to JWU Finance alumni so we can stay connected. Currently there are 250+ alumni on this page and each year finance majors are asked to join this growing network.

Q&A with Jean

At JWU, education is not confined to the four walls of the classroom. You’re not going to spend four years with your nose buried in a book, learning theories you may never get a chance to apply — you’re going to get out there and apply them, be it through internships, group projects, leadership opportunities, competitions and more.
