Marketing Mentor


 

After twenty plus years in private industry as either a sales or marketing manager in businesses as diverse as financial services, small appliances, fast food franchising, medical products and corporate training, I shifted my focus to higher education.  The first course I taught was Macroeconomics at Stevens Henager College in Ogden, Utah.  After teaching a few more classes in Finance, Management and Marketing, I was hooked!  I have been teaching now for nearly thirteen years, covering all business disciplines including accounting (after teaching two classes of accounting I decided it was better to leave it to experts like Bob Burdette). 

Following three years of both part- and full-time teaching, I was asked to manage the entire business program at Stevens Henager as the Associate Dean of Business.  I also served as advisor to our Phi Beta Lambda chapter (Future Business Leaders college division) for three years, taking many students to state and national competitions.  Since leaving Stevens Henager, I have continued to teach while pursuing other opportunities in higher education.  I worked for nearly four years as an account manager in the college text publishing and software industry for Cengage Learning, connecting with colleges and universities throughout Utah and Idaho.  I have recently worked as a classroom technology consultant for K-12 and higher education for Logical Choice Technologies, headquartered in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

In 2007, while working for Cengage Learning, I visited Bob Cox, then the SLCC Division Chair in the business school.  It was the first week of fall semester and he was concerned that he had no instructor for a microeconomics course beginning the following Monday night.  I volunteered, was hired on the spot, and the rest is history (I think the semester was half over before all the hiring paperwork caught up with me).  Since then, I have taught at least one class at SLCC every semester (including summer).

Currently, I split my teaching activities between SLCC and LDS Business College, and have now been given the distinct honor to work as the marketing mentor for STUDENTfacturED.  I have a passion for marketing, and I am excited to once again work with students in a real hands-on learning environment.
