Since then, Kathy has been amongst the leaders in advancing the status of pedagogical research to new heights and being a great steward of our journals, as evidenced by the universal respect they are given across the management disciplines.

Barbara A. Ritter joined MOBTS in 2006 and has since gone on to be an integral and impactful voice not just within the Society itself, but well beyond in instituting the mission of enhancing the quality of teaching and learning within her institutions and amongst other organizations she sits on the Boards of.
