Office: Madison Hall – Administration Building, Room 220
Title: Program Director of Business, Assistant Professor of Business
Started at Calvary: January 2016
Professional Information: I started at Calvary as an adjunct professor in the Business Administration Department at the graduate level back in Jan. 2016. In Jan. 2017, I was hired as a full-time faculty member serving as chair of the Business Administration Department for the undergraduate program. I earned an AS and BS in Criminal Justice at Missouri Western State University; a Master’s in Business Administration in 2009; and a Doctorate of Management in Organizational Leadership in 2014.
Favorite aspect of teaching at Calvary: My favorite aspect of teaching at Calvary is to inspire students to be successful learners along with educating them in a biblical environment in preparation for their divine purposes in ministry.
Favorite class to teach: All classes in Business Administration are my favorite but if I have to pick one, I would say it is Organizational Behavior and Planned Change.
How did past ministry/professional experience lead to your position at Calvary: I was in the addiction field for 19 years and I would always use a biblical aspect for individual and group counseling sessions; however, after completing my doctorate, I knew I wanted to teach in a higher learning environment where God is the center point, along with making use of the Bible as a way of living.
Ministry/Professional involvement outside of Calvary: I participate in a health and fitness ministry where we educate others on the importance of great nutrition and exercise. I am also a volunteer with the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Program for men 18+. Both programs are biblically based regarding self-care of the body, mind, and spirit.
