I have over 25 years of experience in corporate accounting and understand the day-to-day work flow in managing an accounting department. I also currently teach several courses in accounting including Accounting I and II, Computerized Accounting, MS-Excel Spreadsheet Fundamentals and Advanced Spreadsheet(Excel), Payroll Accounting, Principles of Fraud Examination to name a few. I am currently an adjunct accounting instructor at one of the technical colleges operated by the State of Georgia in the Atlanta metro area.

I love accounting and like seeing the light bulb come on when teaching a student. I think everyone learns differently and I try to hone in on the best approach to teach each student. I am also a Certified Public Accountant currently licensed in Georgia.
