Q. What motivated you to become a college professor?
A. I have worked in organizations where I saw many issues that could have been corrected earlier and I wanted to change that. I believe that as a professor, we are molding tomorrow’s leaders. I love teaching and coaching students to reach their full potential in order to make a positive impact and leave their mark.
Q. How did you find your way to the Hull College of Business?
A. I graduated from Augusta State University in 2006 and knew when I started my journey to be a professor, I wanted to teach here. It’s kind of surreal to now have some of my previous professors as peers. I was a part-time instructor for the HCOB before I became full-time in August of this year.
Q. What has surprised you so far in your faculty career?
A. The HCOB has amazing collegiality. I knew that I would have support but colleagues have gone above and beyond to make sure that I grow and succeed. I am thankful to work with a great group of people in the business school.
