Tell us about yourself.  

I earned my Ph.D. in International Political Economy from the University of Colorado-Boulder. In my career, I have developed environmental stewardship plans for businesses to implement. I am also grateful that organizations have been receptive to my work on “Complex Decision-Making for Growth and Sustainability: How Businesses and Universities Can Structure Themselves to Create a Sustainable Future.” Outside of teaching, I enjoy hiking.

I choose Concordia for its focus on student success, rigorous academics, and transformative experiences. I love that the Concordia community cares about each other and about our impact on the local and global communities.
