Teaching

I have taught university courses since 2004, when I began teaching Sport Marketing courses at Columbia College-Chicago in addition to my full-time job as a Public Relations and Marketing Manager for a professional motorsports team. During this time, I developed a strong passion for teaching and it played a major role in my decision to return to school to pursue my Ph.D. Over the past 15 years I’ve had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of sport management courses both in-person and online.
