Educational Background: I attended SFCC and transferred to the University of Southern California to finish my Bachelors in Business Administration Degree with a minor in Marketing. Then I accepted a position which entailed traveling the U.S. helping businesses market themselves and I enjoyed this for several years. We traveled from Maine to Texas to Wisconsin to California and had many adventures.

Settling down in Spokane next, I located the perfect company to work for, Group Health. I was, and still am, passionate about the quality of healthcare provided by Group Health and I was always proud to represent this company as the Sales and Marketing Director, Eastern Washington/North Idaho. I enjoyed this position for over 20 years. And again, I was able to travel to corporate offices of large corporations in other states in order to represent Group Health.

Seven years ago, a professor/friend needed me to teach Marketing and Human Relations at SFCC. I agreed to this, began teaching and found that I was driven to stay in order to work with more students. For me, helping students learn ideas and information that will serve them throughout life is absolutely the best profession. And I look forward to working with all students in this adventure.
