"I enjoy helping students explore how the theories they’ve learned can be applied to real world settings.  To accomplish this, I bring my 35+ years as a Certified Financial Planner and entrepreneur business owner to bear on offering a practical focus to classroom lessons.  My courses utilize historic case studies and current events to help students understand ethics through a 'lessons learned' focus. Realizing we may learn best through different mediums (visual, auditory and reading) I encourage student presentations in addition to weekly readings and class discussions."
