Born in Queens, New York, at 16 I moved to Cleveland, Ohio with my family which is where I attended college and graduate school. I graduated from Baldwin Wallace College in Berea, Ohio with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration in 2000. Graduated from Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio in 2004 with a Masters of Business Administration in Executive Management. I moved to Tucson in late 2003 to be close to family. I have a wealth of knowledge in business management and finance as well as experience working with different cultures and personality types gleaned from having worked in jobs such as commercial banking, the hospital industry, non-profit organizations, and the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. I began working with the University of Arizona in November of 2010 to lead the business team for the newly created School of International Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
