My professional career began as an auditor in public accounting for one of the large international firms. It was an incredibly valuable learning experience that sparked my desire to educate myself further regarding the complexities of the financial accounting world. While in graduate school, I had the opportunity to serve as a teaching assistant for an undergraduate auditing course. That experience would prove to shape the trajectory of my professional career. I have been teaching for over 20 years, and still look forward to the new faces, as well as the challenges that each semester brings.
