I have taught at NDNU since 2008. My teaching approach relies on both academic knowledge and nearly two decades of Human Resources and Leadership Development experience in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, where I developed strategic approaches to achieving ambitious organizational goals. This experience includes six years as the Director of Human Resources for a municipal department where I managed nearly 50 staff in six functional areas, taking responsibility for organizational development, leadership training, employment law, labor relations, workplace violence, and employee relations. In addition, I have worked in advising roles with several non-profits, including ten years on the Board of Directors of an international organization that does advocacy work for women and children. I have also worked as a scholastic coach and editor for doctoral students, most of whom have been focused on international issues, and I have edited several books. My doctoral dissertation reflects both academic and personal passion and is titled, “Journeys of Purpose, An Ontology of Spirituality Through Work in Memory, Imagination, and Authenticity. I have lectured on issues related to both Human Resources Management and critical hermeneutic theory at local universities and have published articles related to workplace issues for women and reproductive grief.
