Bio

An Assistant Professor in the Department of Hospitality Management at CUNY’s New York City College of Technology specializing in food and beverage management. Recently she has taught Dining Room Operation, Wine and Beverage Management and Perspectives in Hospitality Management. In addition to her joy of teaching she is often found working with students as the Faculty Advisor to the Walt Disney World College Program Campus Representatives.

Finding it important to continually increase her understanding of the teaching and learning practices, she works as the Co-director of General Education for the Title V Grant, A Living Laboratory. Here she facilitates seminars for full-time and part-time faculty focused on Incorporating High Impact Educational Practices, Place Based Learning and Assessment Measures.

As an industry professional, Prof. Goodlad has become a Certified Specialist of Wine with the Society of Wine Educators where she is also a member. This certification is evidence of her passion for expanding her own knowledge about wine and beverages but also her desire to effectively teach the subject.

Prof. Goodlad is a member of the board of directors of Les Dames d’Escoffier the premier international organization of women leaders in food, beverage and hospitality. Here she finds pleasure in working on various committees throughout the organization and is the Co-Chair of the Scholarship Committee whereby she can help further the organization’s mission in support of education, advocacy and philanthropy.

It is through all her work that she seeks to provide endless opportunities for students to pursue their passions and attain their goals.

Selected Hospitality Management students take part in an exchange program with students from Universite d’Evry during the month of June. This project presents first hand, the business of tourism, hotel management, cuisine and culture to our hospitality students at City Tech. During these 3 weeks our students are based in Paris and have had visits and conferences that included the Hotel de Ville, Rungis Market, Hotel George V, Patisserie Lenotre, Moet et Chandon in Champagne, Restaurant Le Grand Colbert, La Coupole and Le Vefour. Culture is investigated through the everyday experiences of living in Paris. Cuisine is formerly practiced in several culinary schools and informally experienced through day to day market shopping, tastings and restaurant dining. Each year students work on various walking tour assignments and have presented historic and cultural tours of various sites in Paris.
