Assistant Professor and Director, Bisk College of Business

Personal Overview

Hello, I'm Dr. Vicky Knerly. I was born & raised in Syracuse, NY, lived in Florida for 18 years (Tampa and Miami and then Tampa again), St. Simons Island, GA for 12 years, Melbourne, FL for 5 years, and now I live in the Huntsville, AL area. In my day job at Florida Tech, I am the Assistant Professor and Director of the Huntsville/Redstone education center. I have, throughout the years, managed a number of functions within the university.  I also teach business and communications courses, mostly online through our Virtual education center.

In addition, I co-write novels with an author in St. Augustine, Florida. To date, we have published nine novels and a short story through Suspense Publishing as e-books and have two novels in print.

I have a bachelor's degree in English, two masters' degrees: an MBA and a Master of Science in Acquisition & Contract Management, and a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA). I completed my undergraduate degree at Florida International University in Miami, and I completed both masters' degrees and my doctorate degree right here at Florida Tech. My first master's degree and the doctorate were completed mainly in the classroom, but my second master's degree was completed entirely online.
