Enthusiastic, dedicated, resourceful education professional, with over 32 years in education and industry as a professor of economics and business, an administrator, a financial officer, a business consultant, and an accountant.  I worked as the chair for the departments of business at four universities and colleges and as a Business Manager (VP) for finance at Northern Caribbean University (West Indies College), Jamaica.   I taught business subjects at several academic institutions to both traditional and non-traditional students. These subjects include Economics, Finance, Management, Statistics, Entrepreneurship, Business Strategy, and Marketing. I consulted extensively in industry and with the governments of the Ivory Coast, Benin, and Guinea-Bissau. I pay close attention to details and to human needs. I have keen human relations, analytical and problem-solving skills, and use these skills in motivating people.

I participated in the American Council of Education (ACE) Fellows Program, a Higher Education Leadership Development Program that prepares senior leaders to administer effectively at colleges and universities.  I also participated in the ELI Institute Fellows Program that prepares University Faculty in developing a quality entrepreneurial curriculum for colleges and universities.
