A ship in port is safe; but that is not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things.

–Grace Hopper

In my family, teaching is the family business. My father, uncle, aunt, brother, cousins and in-laws are all educators. I was destined to become an educator myself and went about it in the most unusual way: first as a practicing financial planner and then in a variety of roles in the financial services industry. I am now fortunate to be part of the Personal Finance program with the opportunity to teach and work with students as they explore the many career paths available to them.

The strength of our program is how we help students develop the necessary analytical skills and couple them with an understanding and appreciation of the whole person.
