I am an Associate Professor in the Economics and Business Department at Virginia Military Institute. I earned my PhD from Clemson University in 2011. I also have an MBA and a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences with a minor in Secondary Education. I have 9 years of industry experience in e-commerce. My teaching experience includes traditional and on-line courses, with a focus on Management of Information Systems. My research interests lie in IT-business strategic alignment, power and politics in the workplace, and adoptive IT behaviors. I am professionally engaged at VMI and in the MIS field. I also work extensively with cadets outside the classroom. In May 2014, I received the VMI Thomas Jefferson Teaching Award. In December 2015, I received the AIS Early Career Award (click here for an announcement in the VMI Institute Report or here for an announcement from the Newsstand at Clemson).
