Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” – John Wooden

 

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”           – John Quincy Adams                                                     

Biography

After 37 years at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) where I was fortunate to witness many amazing technological accomplishments, I have chosen King University to move into my next life phase, teaching.  I would hope to inspire and train students to become successful while maintaining their dignity and character.

My graduate degrees, all from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, were obtained while working full-time, so I can understand what many of the King University students go through as they do the same.  In December 1985 I received my M.S. degree in industrial and systems engineering with a concentration in reliability engineering and quality control.  In December 1992 I received my PhD degree in Business Administration in a dual program with the College of Engineering referred to as Strategic Management of Technology.  The title of my dissertation was The Strategic Importance of Key Decision Criteria in the Selection of Research Areas.    

I served as an adjunct faculty member for several years prior to retiring from ORNL and knew that teaching full-time for King University was something I longed to do.  I wrote and teach the courses which comprise the project management specialization of the MBA Program.  I also teach other courses as needed and serve on dissertation committees with special interest in research methods.  Lastly, I build strategic relationships within the Knoxville Area for King University.   

My research interests include research methods, business competitiveness, technology management and entrepreneurship.
