Teaching

My favorite part of teaching is mentoring students to discover their strengths & career passion. I have taught since 2012 in a business school, first at California State University, Chico and now at UCF.

 

All students have a valuable, unique perspective, so I seek to create an inclusive environment where everyone can share their thoughts, while actively learning from science-based research and experiential activities.
