I joined the faculty of what is now the David D. Reh School of Business at Clarkson University in August 2015. I teach organizational behavior and organizational theory classes in the Healthcare MBA as well as leadership and organizational behavior in the management MBA. I am also a Consulting Partner with Vide Consulting Group, LLC.
At Clarkson University, I have the honor of working with a dedicated group of colleagues as Senior Personnel on the National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE grant. Our project, STEM LEAF (STEM Leadership, Equity, and Advancement for Faculty), pursues three goals: (1) to
significantly reduce implicit bias associated with gender and its intersections with other facets of identity; (2) to systematically and equitably support the development and the professional advancement of women STEM faculty, and (3) to promote the sustainability of these systemic efforts through university-wide structural changes.
Prior to joining Clarkson University, I was the Director and Senior Research Associate at Temple University’s Nonprofit Evaluation Services and Training (NEST) program where I managed research, evaluation, programming, and capacity building exercises for partner organizations like the United Way, National Park Service, PA Department of Education, PA Department of Aging, and the US-Japan Foundation. I successfully secured over $320,000 in grants/contracts and had the privilege of co-creating the International Nonprofit Training and Leadership (INTL) certificate program designed to foster managerial skills in an increasingly global environment. During this time, I was also an instructor for Temple University and for the Master of Organizational Leadership program through the College of Business at Alvernia University.
I am a member of the Academy of Management (AOM; Health Care Management [HCM], Gender & Diversity in Organizations [GDO], and Organizational Behavior [OB] Divisions), and serve on the HCM Division Research Committee. I am a member of AcademyHealth and American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). I was previously affiliated with the International Leadership Association (ILA) and Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA).
I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania for my PhD, West Chester University for my MPH, and Ursinus College for my BS. I reside in upstate NY with my husband and cat.
