M.S. Accounting, Bridgewater State University; M.S. Education, Syracuse University; B.S. Education, Potsdam State University


The first phase of my career was spent in K-12 education launching a fully inclusive education program that became a statewide model in New York. I designed, organized, and presented workshops on inclusive education, facilitative communication, and collaborative learning for faculty, educational support teams, and parents. I was heavily involved in curriculum mapping objectives and outcomes to the standards. As well as mapping individual IEP objects for students with accommodations. 

The second phase of my career was spent in public accounting. I participated in client field work and prepared compiled, reviewed and audited financial statements for partnerships, S corporations, C corporations, and not-for-profit clients. Provided tax return preparation and tax liability analysis and planning for corporate and individual clients, as well as tax return preparation for trusts and not-for-profit organizations. Performed monthly general ledger accounting for small to mid-size business clients and provided support services for initial company software set-up and chart of accounts. 

The third phase of my career combines my passion for education with my love for accounting. I was previously Director of the Accounting and Finance Lab at Bridgewater State University and have taught accounting and business courses as a full-time instructor at both Wheaton College and Bridgewater State University.

I am extremely passionate about providing open educational resources (OER) for students and recently completed the revision of an open source text from International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The textbook is now being used at Wheaton College in the Financial Accounting course.
