Academic background:

The academic fields of Social Work and Law are concerned with fostering human dignity, growth, justice, and empowerment.  In my position as a Program Manager in the Center for Continuing Education, I seek to develop meaningful programs for adult and undergraduate learners that foster these objectives, along with many others, through competency-building.  Ethical leadership and emotional intelligence are my primary areas of academic interest.  I am passionate about supporting students in their own growth journey that applies ethical leadership to life.  My teaching philosophy is grounded in the belief that personal engagement is the key to meaningful learning. 

Non-academic background:

My favorite ways to spend personal time involve people and nature, but cinema, books, and creative endeavors are always on my list.  I am a member of an international Buddhist lay organization, Soka Gakkai International, and I actively support the local district as well as the student organization on campus.  I have a lifelong passion for Lake Superior and the beauty of the region, and my husband and I (and our dogs) enjoy getting outdoors and traveling. 

Area of knowledge:

Ethical leadership, emotional intelligence, and Buddhism

Recent accomplishments:

I designed the Certificate in Ethical Leadership and teach within the program.  The certificate is now available on both a for-credit and non-credit basis.  I seek out leadership training on a regular basis, such as the annual Mindful Leadership Summit. I developed and taught IDS 220, Emotional Intelligence.  I co-authored "How Do You Effectively Teach Empathy Skills to Students?," published in 2017 by Jossey Bass as a chapter of Big Picture Pedagogy: Finding Interdisciplinary Solutions to Common Learning Problems.  I presented highlights of the chapter with a co-author, Dr. Maria Cuzzo, at the 2015 OPID Spring Conference. I have participated in international training seminars through Soka Gakkai International, and have held a number of leadership positions within the U.S. organization, SGI-USA.
