I began teaching for the University of Mary in 2001 as a faculty member of the Gary Tharaldson School of Business (formerly the Division of Business). I teach undergraduate and graduate courses. I came to the university with seven years' teaching experience in higher education and have also worked for the attorney general's office in the state of North Dakota as a network administrator. I hold several industry certifications that deal with technology. I also do consulting for small businesses regarding their technology needs. I bring hands-on technology experience to the classroom, along with more than 20 years of teaching experience.
