Prior to joining the Business Department, Stacy had multiple careers in teaching as an “outstanding undergrad,” banking, and international consulting in sales management. Stacy spent the majority of her career, 25 years, in banking, with 11 of those years for Bank of America.

She chose to come to SNC because of our ability to “prepare students for a real and changing world.” Stacy says that “students are going to be in jobs that haven’t been created yet.” She believes that since the world is changing so much, majors aren’t going to matter as much as the ability to critically think through an issue or solve a problem. Stacy came to SNC because of our emphasis on team building, critical thinking, small class sizes, and problem solving.

Much like SNC, Stacy is committed to student learning and transforming students’ lives. She is excited to be a part of a program that helps launch students into the world and loves seeing the growth of the students she teaches. When asked about her classes so far gleaming from ear to ear, Stacy said, “I LOVE THEM!”

Get Ready!

Are you ready for school to start?!?! Your professors are winding down the summer, prepping courses, and getting ready.

2013 Valedictorian Nominees

The valedictorian nominees for the Business Department are Ben Cary, Stine Lunde, and Luca Ricou. Stine

“I feel privileged to be nominated for Valedictorian. Being chosen from a group of so many good students as one of the candidates to represent the Class of 2013, is truly an honor. My four years at Sierra Nevada College has been amazing, and if I were to be chosen to speak at the Commencement Ceremony it would be a perfect ending to this journey.” – Stine Lunde

Spring Break

This past week, we met up with recent grad Andrew Gauthier. Andrew pulled an all-nighter to meet us in Paris over spring break. Andrew is currently getting his MBA in Hospitality Management at Glion in Switzerland. He is working on his dissertation with Killington Ski Resort. Andrew will graduate in June and hopes to return to the States to work at a ski resort on the west coast.

We had a weekend packed with friends, sights, and food.
