Brief biography

I have been teaching accounting in higher education since 2001 at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels.  I believe in a learner-centered approach to education and bring my work experience into the classroom so students gain an understanding of how accounting concepts are used in organizations.  Before teaching, I worked in the insurance industry where I was involved in projects such as designing an division wide Activity Based Costing model  and a financial and management accounting reporting system for a mutual fund dealership.
