My goal is to generate passion — passion for marketing communications and lifelong learning. I love to see the light go on when students discover a career that will challenge them for a lifetime. Words that describe my teaching style are: participatory, fun and "real world." Through experiential assignments, students solve problems, role-play and explore more than one right answer. We can all learn from each other. In fact, students occasionally teach the class.
Sally is the faculty advisor for the university's Marketing Communications Club (MCC). This club helps students to bridge the gap between college and the professional world by networking with advertising professionals, attending conferences, touring ad agencies, and participating in social events. Sally also is a strong advocate of students studying at Webster's international campuses with teaching experience in Thailand and The Netherlands.
