Hello. I have been teaching college-level accounting courses for more than 15 years. I hold a Doctorate in Business Administration with an Accounting concentration, an MBA with an Entrepreneurship concentration, and a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting. I kind of fell into teaching when I saw an ad for a part-time instructor for a technical college in my hometown. I was intrigued by the idea of teaching, so I applied. That first year was tough! But I persevered and learned a lot about teaching.
I have worked in various areas of accounting. I started out as an Accounts Payable Clerk for a manufacturing business. In that capacity, I also completed the payroll when I was needed. I also learned about cost accounting, adjusting and closing entries, and many other accounting (and life) concepts in that job.
Much of my accounting experience was in the health-care industry. I worked in medical records/insurance billing for a hospital, managed group homes for a non-profit organization, and was the Office Manager/CFO for a group of doctors. All these experiences served me well in that I can discuss a wide variety of accounting experiences with my students.
I have taught associates-, bachelors-, and masters-level courses in Accounting and can honestly say that I enjoy teaching at any of these levels.
