Financial Literacy & Careers

About Me:

  • I am a recent career-changer to the field of education from a 20-year career in the business world.  I have had a fantastic career in the telecommunications industry with a wide range of responsibilities from sales, operations, management, and finance.  I also have a bachelor’s and completing my master’s in December in Business Administration.  I’m passionate about business education and student success.  I look forward to a great year together!

About Financial Literacy & Careers:

  • My goal is to take my first hand experience and help our students learn about their career options, what it takes to be successful in the business world, and also teach them the basics of personal finance.  The first half of the year is dedicated to the education of basic financial principles that will give them the foundation that they will use for the rest of their lives in managing their finances.  The second half of the year is dedicated to career exploration and hands-on work to figure out which career path excites students and how to pursue that career successfully.
