Meet Your Faculty – Dr. Shannon Cummins

Department: Marketing

What was your favorite subject in school & why?

I loved my freshman art history class—so much so that I made it one of my 3 majors.  If you ever need to know about regional American painters or want a tour guide at the Milwaukee Art Museum, I’m your Marketing Professor!

What was your least favorite subject in school & why?

I don’t think I had a least favorite subject.  Every class I can think of I enjoyed in some way.  I think that is a big reason I ended up with three majors!

 What were you doing before you came to Whitewater?

I was finishing my doctoral dissertation at the University of Nebraska.  Before that I worked in healthcare for a lobbyist group in Washington, D.C.

What made you want to teach?

My mom was a teacher and I think seeing how much she enjoyed her students and the great variety in her job moved me in this direction.

 What research are you currently working on?

I’m working on some sales education research with Dr. Peltier and some network research of my own that investigates the power of mental maps and industry connections.

What do you like to do outside of the College of Business & Economics?

I enjoy household improvement projects and cooking, going for walks with my dog, and traveling with my husband whenever we get the chance.

What is something that students would be surprised to learn about you?

I used to speak a bit of Polish—only because I lived in Warsaw and it came in handy.

What is something about teaching that was unexpected when you first began?

How much I enjoyed it!
