Personal Statement

In teaching accounting, I am able to help students understand the importance of accounting in reaching their own career goals. From freshman-level classes — where I typically introduce students to accounting for the first time — to senior level classes — where I help prepare students to take their first steps into the business world — I am always happy to have the opportunity to teach accounting at the college level.
