Dr. Lewis has been a member of the Troy University faculty since 2009. Prior to joining the TROY faculty, she served as a graduate student teacher at Florida State University from 2005 to 2009, and as a programmer/integration analyst with Southeast Alabama Medical Center from 2002 to 2005.

"Dr. Lewis is a resident of Dothan with true passion for this community," said Dr. Judson Edwards, Dean of the Sorrell College of Business.

"Being a road warrior has always been tightly integrated with who I am, whether it was driving to Tallahassee while working on my Ph.D. or traveling to work at Troy University's Phenix City campus. So, it's thrilling to be back home in my lovely city of Dothan."
