With a background that includes a Chemical Engineering Bachelor degree and an MBA, my teaching philosophy is influenced by my hands-on business experience, where I worked within cross functional teams to achieve goals, set operational strategies, managed and developed people, created new ideas and products, and most recently by my experience as an entrepreneur. Having had the privilege to occupy senior positions in the multinational company, Unilever, and to run my e-commerce and consulting and trading businesses, I involve students in real life business situations, share with them business cases, and entice them to produce knowledge through linking the course material to their own experiences.

Benjamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”I believe in activity-based learning in which students get the opportunity to apply the course concepts through projects with real purposes, audiences, and tangible outcomes.

Beyond the classroom and work environment, I enjoy spending time with my husband and twoteenagers, who are both athletes at provincial and national levels. Travelling has been a part of my life since the early age of 1, where I grew up, lived, visited, and worked in many places around the globe such as, Canada, Egypt, Russia, Italy, the UK, the U.A.E (Dubai), France, Switzerland (Geneva), the USA, and Hungary (Budapest).I enjoy swimming, Yoga, and cooking, where I like to explore with new and different recipes.
