About the instructors

As an educator, I view teaching as a tool that allows me to connect with a variety of people where my actions have a direct impact on their life.  From my own background as a student, it was the teachers who made classes interesting and engaging that made me so interested in academia. I draw upon these experiences in my own teaching methodology.  I’ve always wanted to teach as it is a way to share my experiences with others.  It’s always interesting to hear others’ viewpoints on different topics.  I understand the challenges an adult student faces while working towards a degree while having other life stressors and commitments on your time. 

Dr. Wibbenmeyer has a PhD in Business Administration, Management Information Systems; an MBA in Project Management and a BS, Management Information Systems.

 

She is a detail oriented professional with extensive management experience; certified in Six Sigma, ITIL and Project Management. She also has expertise in managing corporate standards while positively effecting the change management environment.
