I was an auditor at Ernst & Young from 1993 to 1997. In 1998 I started teaching in the Business Department at Univali University, in Brazil, working there until 2005, when I moved to Iowa. While in Iowa, I taught at North Iowa Community College. In 2006, I moved to Columbus and finished my doctorate. I have been at IUPUC since 2007, beginning as adjunct professor in management and in 2008 I became assistant professor of management. My areas of interest are: international business, organizational behavior, small technology-based firms, and environmental sustainability.
