About Me: My name is Gary Valcana and I am an assistant professor in management. Currently, I reside in Hazel Green, Al. with my wonderful wife, and youngest son. My oldest son is a pharmacy student at Auburn University. Before landing in Hazel Green, I served my country for six years followed by obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I worked in the Emergency Department, and in CVICU (Open Heart Recovery). After ten years at the hospital, I decided to work in “Corporate America” as a Registered Nurse. My first industry position was at a unionized tire manufacturer. During my tenure, I completed my Masters Nursing. My career took a different path when my position was absorbed by the Human Resources department. I liked this change so much that I decided to pursue a MBA. After several years in HR, I decided that my experience and degrees would benefit others. Therefore, I pursued a DBA and my current position.
Hobbies: On a more personal note, I am a "health nut". I enjoy all kinds of exercise to include P90X, P90X-2, Insanity, triathlons, and golf (really not exercise!!). I competed in my second ½ Ironman this past September and may entertain doing a full Ironman.
