Latest accomplishment: Last year, I was tasked with creating a pilot academic center for business and accounting students as part of the Integrated Student Experience adopted by NECC. The Center for Business & Accounting is now in its second year of operation. It provides industry-specific programs, career services, transfer information, registration and advising services, as well as a home where students can access a computer, work on homework, meet with a professor, or hang out between classes. This year the center launches a lunch and learn series called “Chew on This,” where faculty and students discuss issues and trends in business.
Signature Quote: “This too shall pass.”
Profile: Prior to becoming an educator I was a corporate attorney. I love the law and enjoy sharing my experiences in business and the law. I have taught Legal Research & Writing to law school students, written for a legal publication, and worked as a law clerk at an appellate court. I graduated from Boston College with a bachelor’s in psychology and from New England School of Law. Married for 30 years, I have two adult children.
Why I do what I do: I love to read and learn new things. I also like to teach others what I have learned. I enjoy helping students find a career path that will keep them interested and engaged. Working in education makes one a lifelong learner.
