About

I was born and raised in southern California, but I have lived half of my life in Hawaii. I graduated with a BS in Health Science and Respiratory Therapy from Loma Linda University in California. In addition to completing an MAM in Management from the University of Redlands, I also have an MBA from Chaminade University of Honolulu. My doctoral degree (DM) in Management/Organizational Leadership is from the University of Phoenix.

I live in Kailua, Hawaii. I am married with two adult children and currently teach for college and university online and traditional programs. I live in Hawaii because I like being close to the ocean and family.

I spent the first 20 years of my professional career in Respiratory Care, and Health Care management. Since 1979 I have worked for a variety of health care organizations, mostly managing start-up projects in hospital and clinical departments. In 1997, I made a significant career change by pursuing a full-time teaching career. My teaching experience includes facilitating both traditional classroom and distance program (online) course work in Respiratory Care, Health Care Administration, and Business Management.

Currently, as the Associate Dean for Respiratory Therapy programs for a fully online program, I facilitate the continued success of one of the largest and only fully online accredited RT programs in the country.
