Dr. Fish’s area of professional expertise is in operations and global supply chain management, where her strong background in industrial and production systems engineering provides her students with a real-world understanding of concepts presented in the classroom.

Her experiential teaching methods have been recognized twice on a national scale, as she was asked on two different occasions to present her techniques at the Decision Sciences Institute’s national meetings. Several of these techniques have been published in the prestigious Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education.

Dr. Fish’s expertise in project management, supply chain management, ergonomics and industrial efficiency has made her a valuable consultant to industry. Her clients have included Fisher-Price, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, General Motors, and General Mills.

Dr. Fish serves as chair of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, director for the undergraduate global logistics and supply chain management minor and the graduate global supply chain management concentration, as well as co-director for the operations management undergraduate minor. She has designed and taught several courses offered at Canisius, including the popular “Global Supply Chain Management” and “Project Management” for graduates and undergraduates.
