My very rewarding thirty year association with RSENR's Recreation Management Program includes both teaching and working with students in an advisory capacity related to their career paths. The courses I've created and taught include Resort Marketing and Management (30 years!), Sustainable Tourism Planning (first taught in the 80s, picked up again in 2009), Entrepreneurship in Recreation and Tourism (almost 20 years), Ski Area Management (12 years). My long-term experience as a professional in Vermont's travel and recreation industry has enabled me to bring the "real world" into the classroom, helping students to understand the relationship between their education and recreation and tourism as functioning businesses in a constantly evolving environment. There is great emphasis on "Green and Sustainable" recreation and tourism.
