Bio

Prior to becoming an accountant, I taught teachers how to teach disturbed and disturbing children and worked directly with disturbed children. After my return to school and completing my accounting studies, I worked for several years with a regional accounting firm and, during my doctoral studies, formed a small accounting firm with another student. Since 1994, I have been teaching at Youngstown State University.

Research Interests

Pedagogy, student development

Teaching Interests

I am very interested in what it means to teach and what it means to learn. My vehicle for pursuing these interests is teaching financial accounting.
