For the next 20 years, I worked as a tenure-track and tenured faculty member at other universities and worked in the industry. In my current role, I teach courses, provide academic and career advising and mentorship, supervise interns, and coordinate academic affairs for both Retail & Merchandising Management and Hospitality and Tourism Management.
