Ryan considers himself to be one of the luckiest people on campus because he works with some of the most amazing students Trevecca has to offer - the future leaders in Trevecca's Ed.D. in leadership program.  As program leader for the online modality of the program and associate professor of leadership studies, he spends his days working to empower future doctors to make exponential and generational impact for their stakeholders and communities.

Ryan is a product of Trevecca's on-campus Ed.D. program and has also completed a Doctorate of Business Administration, giving him unique perspective and insight into the experience of doctoral students, professors and administrators. Ryan came to Trevecca after several different careers - music business, banking and K-12 education - and continues to use that varied experience and background to craft and lead a program that prepares students to lead any organization to the highest levels.
