At Ashford, she instructs a wide range of courses including Organizational Behavior, Leadership, Management, Team building, Creativity and Innovation, Ethics, Organizational Development, and Human Resources. Dr. Just believes it is never too late to learn and says, “Life is not based on textbook theories, rather a combination of leadership abilities and life experiences. I strive to help learners understand that one size doesn’t fit all. You must be prepared at all times to be flexible and innovative. I believe we all can learn through asking questions, being a champion for our own goals, and remaining open.” Dr. Just lives in Clemmons, NC with her partner Maria and their puppy Harley. Harley is a Bernese mountain dog and Spaniel mix who loves to chase leaves, run after tennis balls and take naps. The couple enjoys cooking, entertaining, camping, hiking, and spending time with their families. They live across from a 1500-acre park, complete with miles of hiking trails and a dog park perfect for taking Harley on walks.
