Hello everyone, I am Joe. I come from the small town of Stockbridge VT but now live in Bellevue NE. I joined the USAF first in the Air National Guard and then received my commission as an officer in the active-duty Air Force. I am a retired USAF Navigator where I flew treaty compliance aircraft from Offutt AFB in Bellevue NE (near Omaha). Business Administration from Johnson State College, Johnson VT. (now Northern Vermont University. I received my MBA in International Business from Trident University, and a Ph.D. in Business Administration with a Marketing focus. My dissertation and publications have focused on the travel and tourism industry and push and pull motivations, also from Trident University. I live with my busy Nurse Midwife wife and an active 10-year-old, 1 cat and a tank of fish. When I have free time I enjoy travel, yoga, lifting weights, reading, and trying to get outside. I look forward to getting to know everyone in class better and learning about what kinds of business experiences you have.
