I received my PhD in Accounting from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2012, and have been teaching at SU ever since. I am also a CPA licensed in Maryland and Virginia. Before entering academia, I spent several years in the military followed by more than twenty years as one of three owners of a small wholesale/retail/manufacturing firm in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. I am able to leverage my extensive professional experience with academic knowledge to provide students with a unique learning experience.
