Teaching Overview

My strengths as an educator come from my professional background, research interests and teaching experience. First, after attaining an MBA from the Yale School of Management (SOM), I spent four years working in financial analytical roles at Standard and Poor’s and Harvard University. This experience allows me to articulate and describe real cases from the working world and bring practiced, topical skills to the classrom. Second, my research gives me the opportunity to develop new knowledge and skills that I can bring to students. My qualitative study of entrepreneurs gives me insight into the detailed process of enterprise construction, while my text analysis of job descriptions has given me the opportunity to hone my big data analytical capabilities. Finally, I have extensive teaching experience as a solo instructor and as a teaching assistant. At UMB, I currently teach the capstone Strategic Management ccourse to undergradaute seniors and the core Strategic Management course to MBA students.Prior to UMB, I was the instructor of record for a 81-student undergraduate organizations survey course, for which I received top teaching ratings. In each of the summers from 2016-2018, I have been the organizer and lead instructor for a week-long intensive workshop introducing graduate students to computational tools and big data analytics. During my graduate work at Michigan Ross and Yale SOM, I was a teaching assistant for several graduate level classes across the management discipline with topics including: general management, human resources, groups and teams, and interpersonal dynamics.
