I was born in Michigan, and raised in Mexico. I have lived and worked various parts of Latin America, spending more time in Latin America than the US. The doctorate is in Intercultural Studies with a minor in Adult Education and a dissertation focused on Miami. My interests include cultures, worldviews, philosophy, arts and humanities, and spirituality. Past job functions have included medical research, sales, seminar training, and marketing and management consulting for non-profit organizations.

I teach various courses, all related in some way to ethics, including Professional and Healthcare Ethics, Business Administration, World Religions, Managing Cultural Diversity, Service Learning and other Honors College courses.

My desire in teaching is for the student to grow in love of learning, and develop in his or her unique abilities and calling. My objective is to develop an engaged, free and respectful learning envirnment in which we can discuss and explore bringing good theoretical principles and critical thinking into everyday life decisions. A diverse group including different perspectives, ages, cultures, languages and background enrich our discussions.

I do require attendance and assign readings and quizzes before the material is covered in class. Some call this a "flipped" lesson. I find that student preparation results in much better class discussions.
