I have been with Winthrop University since fall of 2015. I teach various courses in the area of sport management. My research interests focus on online sport marketing, sport consumer behavior, and media effects related to different people from divergent backgrounds and environments. I have numerous professional experiences as a marketer for different companies and various experiences at sport organizations. During my free time, I enjoy playing variety of sports such as golf, basketball, and tennis, attending various sports games, and spending time with family and friends. I truly enjoy working and communicating with the students, supporting them to be prepared for the future career, and providing students with opportunities to start their career!
