Petrie, Ph.D.

Adjunct Associate Professor

From: United States

At LCC Since: 2022


The focus of my career work has been business management and information technology.  After earning my MBA at the University of Colorado, I pursued a career in IT management in industry, mostly in the Los Angeles area.  I did my first work in data analytics in these large companies.  Along the way I began teaching business courses part time, and eventually decided to shift my career to academia.   After earning my PhD in business technology management at Claremont Graduate University, I have held business faculty positions in Southern California, the New York City area, and Portland, Oregon.  My current work involves business data analytics, curriculum development, and online teaching.  As time allows, I am a mentor for entrepreneurs (startups and small business owners).  I certainly enjoy the enthusiasm and fresh ideas of students and entrepreneurs!
