Current Activities

I am currently teaching hundreds of students finance each year at the University of Kansas. I also continue to work at Hallmark Cards, Inc. Currently my primary project at Hallmark is assisting in the development and launch of a new Women's Lifestyle magazine. I have worked at Hallmark for over four years primarily focusing on mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and new business ventures. Additionally, I spent one year as the Controller of a business-to-business website that Hallmark developed and spun-off as a subsidiary. Prior to joining Hallmark I worked in financial consulting at Ernst & Young, LLP, where I specialized in assisting banks and corporations with their cash management.
