"I love the small classroom size, and the wonderful faculty and administration at Texas Wesleyan. It’s truly a wonderful environment to be in and it’s a great school. We are endlessly trying to help students excel, letting each student shine and trying to bring out what’s best in them."
She was honored with a student-nominated teaching award, the John Maddux Jr. Faculty Award, which recognized her supportive, motivational and inspirational role in the classroom. "It’s an honor and it makes me very thankful that students are receptive to all the work I’ve put into being a good professor."
Dr. Anderson has been teaching at Texas Wesleyan since 2009 and her classes include Business Statistics, Quantitative Methods and Decision-Making Strategies, Operations and Supply Chain Management, Introduction to Business and Production and Operations Management.
Her class format is a little different than others. "We have a great deal of in-class activities, real-world applications and company visits. Hopefully, it is very engaging, and the students learn how to apply the material they are learning in the classroom, and to see it in progress at a company."
With her Ph.D. completed in 2010, Dr. Anderson is very current in her field of study, supply chain management and sustainability. She also completed the Project Management Professional Certification (PMP), an important industry-recognized credential. "It’s helpful in teaching project management to business majors, as well as giving students a link between the business world and academia."
Dr. Anderson was awarded the John Maddux Jr. Faculty Award in 2014.
Dr. Anderson is a fan of equestrian sports and in the past has enjoyed riding and competing. A mother of two young children, she is a native of New York and misses the mountains of the Northeast (but not the cold weather).
