My interest in accounting as a potential career started with my first accounting class in high school. I found that I really enjoyed figuring out how the pieces of the financial puzzle fit together and decided to pursue an accounting degree. I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Accounting from Manchester University in Indiana. I went back to school six months after graduation while working fulltime to obtain my Masters in Business Administration at the University of La Verne.

I started my career in public accounting at a local firm in Southern California as an auditor and tax preparer. I earned my Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license after passing the CPA exam and obtaining two years of experience.  My career in public accounting lasted more than twenty years and I was a partner for ten of those years. I also spent three years as a controller at a not-for-profit organization. While I thoroughly enjoyed my career in public accounting, I always had an interest in teaching. I have taught more than eight years on a full-time basis and five years on a part-time basis.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach at Chaffey. I enjoy helping students learn accounting and I also love helping students find their passions and how to achieve their dreams and goals.
