I received my bachelor’s degree in economics at Northwestern University. I worked as a controller at a retail firm for three years, while getting my master’s in accounting at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I received my PhD in business administration with a concentration in interdisciplinary study/accounting from Temple University.
As a teacher, I draw on my own experience as well as current practitioners to stimulate students’ interests in learning accounting as the language of business. In my class, I encourage students to ask questions, engage in analytical thinking, practice identifying and solving business problems, practice correcting their mistakes, and mindfully reflect on the ethical, social consequences of their decisions. I strive to help my students to not only develop accounting knowledge and managerial skills, but also build confidence in achieving excellence in their future careers. And I truly enjoy working with students as they navigate through accomplishing their academic goals and professional goals.
I am interested in management accounting and financial accounting topics including control systems, judgment and decision making of managers and other financial statement users, ethical management practices, and sustainability and financial reporting. My research addresses accounting issues with interdisciplinary perspectives drawn from strategy, management, sociology, and psychology, using both qualitative and quantitative methods.
Faculty members from the School of Business Administration have had an article published in the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants’ Journal of Accountancy.
