Before coming to Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO), I earned my master's and Ph.D. degrees from Florida State University and the University of Houston, respectively. I have specialized in Sports Management from my undergraduate through my doctoral degrees. I joined SEMO in 2021, and I am now embarking on my third year at the institution. As the Sport Management program coordinator, my primary responsibilities include program development, the Commission on Sport Management Accreditation (COSMA), and overseeing student internships. I have 11 publications to my name and presentations more than 30 at the conferences. My research interests encompass sport marketing, sport consumer behavior, corporate social responsibility, and sustainability in sport. Throughout my career, I have demonstrated a dedication to teaching a diverse range of Sport Management courses, including Sport Fan Behavior and Marketing, Analysis of Research in Sport, Sport Event Management, Fundamentals of Sport Delivery Systems, and International Sport Management,

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest
