During my Senior Seminar class, I looked at strategy from a macro and micro level. I gained the capability of analyzing external factors such as geopolitical mechanisms, the economy, the industry, etc. in order to determine what factors created the current situation and how to use these factors to either mitigate the situation or change the course of it. This class has been instrumental to my career advancement.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in one phrase: Make it matter. Everybody learns best when the subject matter excites and matters to them. They must have hands-on, realistic activities that immerse them in the subject on a personal level, pushes them to be creative, and encourages them to reach higher and achieve more than they ever thought they could.
