I have been teaching at Danville Area Community College (DACC) for 22 years, and prior to teaching I was Marketing Coordinator and Career Services Director at DACC. I have a Master's Degree in Education Administration and a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a specialization in marketing, management, and management information systems. My husband and I live in Covington, Indiana. We have two sons. My husband is one of the founders and owners of Speedco Truck Lubes. He is Vice-President for Speedco Truck Lubes, which is a national quick-service oil change network for semi-trucks and other heavy duty trucks and RVs. Speedco currently has 50 locations nationwide and are in the process of building additional location over the next few years. We started with one location in Effingham, IL. I enjoy teaching and remaining interested in the business and am looking forward to its future growth. My teaching philosophy incorporates course content with real world application. I utilize projects, cases and discussion of current issues to supplement course material. I enjoy traveling internationally to learn about other cultures and business practices.
