About Me

    I hold an MBA with a Concentration in Finance from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. I am at the dissertation stage in a PhD. program in Higher Education Leadership and Management at Seton Hall University in Orange, NJ. My research interests include Sectoral Strategic Management and Leadership with a particular interest in financial forensics and sectoral strategic leadership (i.e. a mutli-sectoral view of strategic leadership to include leadership in the for-profit sector, the not-for-profit sector and the public sector). My dissertation work coupled with mine prior law enforcement experience (i.e. Military Police and IRS) is to be the foundation from which I intend to conduct future research to explore the relationship, if any, between strategy and fraud (i.e. both Civil & Criminal Financial Fraud).
