I am a recent graduate of SUNY Polytechnic Institute where I received my Master of Science in Accountancy with a concentration in Forensic Accounting and Valuation. Several years prior to that, I graduated from Siena College with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting. I have been a licensed CPA in New York State for almost 20 years and have extensive experience in the accounting field. I am currently engaged in public accounting, but my knowledge base is bolstered by various private accounting experiences in small manufacturing companies, a regional bank, and a nonprofit organization. I have been teaching and training colleagues, staff, and clients for many years. I have discovered that it is a natural inclination for me and has become my passion, particularly encouraging younger staff members to excel. I endeavor to teach in such a manner that students transition beyond understanding the basic concepts presented to being able to apply them effectively in practice.
Education & Certification

I am currently inspired by working with other teaching professionals as a member of the NYSSCPA Future of Accounting Education Committee. I have previously enjoyed participating in my community by volunteering as Treasurer and board member for two different nonprofit organizations within the past 10 years. One organization was a land bank and the other was an ice skating club.
