Our faculty believe strongly in direct interaction with students, and many of our students develop lasting relationships with faculty that continue well beyond the four years spent at the college.  This close link between students and faculty is one of the distinct advantages of an education at a small, liberal arts college like Saint Anselm.

A primary objective in my classes is to increase student awareness that most personal and business decisions can be framed in terms of economic principles and analysis. In my classes, I seek to examine the conflicting philosophies and normative questions which responsible citizens should be aware of regarding the proper role of government with respect to our economy.

I believe that for students to best learn they must be engaged in the classroom and have a desire to understand. I aim to inspire students to see beyond the basics of the material so that they may see the importance of economics in the world around us. Students then gain a more full appreciation of the subject, hence better preparing them to enter the business world.
