Degree Level/Concentration: MBA General Business


Professional Background:
Executive-level hospitality finance professional with 19 years of progressive and diverse experiences in management, development and the analytical valuation of hotel and casino enterprises. With experience in a 5 billion dollar acquisition, $400+ million dollar ground up casino development, and multi-property financial oversight of $2.2 billion in annual revenues, I have had numerous opportunities that have allowed me to experience first-hand how business and industry dynamically change and evolve.


I completed my Bachelors degree at Purdue University Calumet and MBA at Aurora University.


I spent two years as a VP of Finance and CFO at Hollywood Casino in Aurora before moving my career to focus on teaching at the post-secondary level. I have taught various finance, accounting and operational courses in the past two years and have to come to enjoy my experience thoroughly.
