A Little About S. Jeannette Guignard, EdD, MBA

I was born and raised in Southern California, I grew up and live in a suburb outside Los Angeles with my husband, Eric and young son.  Both my husband and I share a passion for continuous learning and teaching others. I have over 15 years of Management, Marketing and Organizational & Leadership Development experience.  I am very excited about sharing my skills, education and experience towards a goal of working with, helping and teaching students.  I have had the privilege of developing my leadership and teaching skills through a culmination of both business experience and also as a result of my education.

I received my Bachelor’s in Marketing with an emphasis in Professional Sales and Product Management as well as my Master’s in Business Administration from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Further, my passion for continuous higher education led me to Pepperdine University for my Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership.  It seems that I have attended school while working for a large part of my life and I can appreciate the dedication and disciple that this challenge entails and I commend anyone who does the same.

Currently, I own a corporate training consulting business and teach as an adjunt professor.  Before working full time in higher education and corporate training, I spent 10 years in the Electronics Industry working for Tyco Electronics.  During that time, I was responsible for maintaining and growing customer relationships, and also for developing new executives; including interviewing, hiring and training new employees.  Prior to working at Tyco, I worked at Sears Corporate Home Improvement Office.  I held various positions within marketing, customer relations and human resources as well as managing an office of 50 people.  Today my purpose is to share my whole self in my teaching.  It is my passion to help, teach, and train others in order to help individuals develop their own leadership and management skills and assist them in achieving their personal and professional goals.
