My Siena Experience

My Teaching Philosophy

I believe it is important to bring course content “to life” by integrating important business news to the topics contained in the syllabus when possible. In this way, students enjoy and better understand the relevance of what they are studying.

What I Love About Siena

I enjoy contributing to the mission of the School of Business and Siena because I feel our students will soon become the business and professional leaders of tomorrow. It is a pleasure to observe and contribute to their development as undergraduate students.

My Favorite Courses to Teach

My favorite courses are Managerial Finance and Institutions and Investments.
