Research Interest

Her research interests include future generation workforce trends within the area of cyber security, information technology, operations management, organizational leadership, and workforce demographics focusing on the Millennial and iGeneration. As a leader and company executive, paving the path for future successors and creating a desirable work environment are increasingly important as technology and cyber security challenges become more prevalent and increasingly require specialized skills previously sought by technology companies.
