Management and Leadership.
MBA, Harvard University; MS in Education, CSU East Bay; BSBA Boston University.

I have spent most of my career in industry working in companies in the communications, computing, and medical device industries.  While my expertise is in Management, I have held positions in Information Technology, Operations Management, Product Development and Marketing.  The large firms I have worked at are GTE, Aspect Telecommunications, Data General, Johnson & Johnson, and American Cyanamid. I also have worked at small startup firms.

My teaching career started at San Francisco State University, where I taught the undergraduate capstone seminar course.  But I have been at De Anza College for more than 15 years.  At De Anza, I have served as the Department Chair and currently serve as the Business Department Scheduler.  (Yes, that means I know which classes will be offered next quarter!)

My hobbies include international travel and animals.  Although there are many countries on my to-do list, I have visited 28 countries so far.  My family has always included some four-legged members (canine and feline). Some years ago, I served on the Board of Directors for the Humane Society Silicon Valley.   I hope you enjoy the travel and pet pictures on My Family page.
