    What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

    I've only taught one course (which I so thoroughly enjoyed!), the senior capstone, but hope to teach in the MHA program and expand my portfolio in business development, the U.S. health care system, and finance and managed care.

    What "called" you to/attracted you to Loyola?

    Loyola's emphasis on health care system management attracted me to become more actively involved at Loyola - and it's been all that I hoped. The Parkinson School promises to be not only an asset to the greater Chicagoland region, but also a leader in value-based health system management and leadership.
