Your Purpose. Our Mission.

My purpose is to serve students by challenging them through real-world applications of accounting and analytics. My mission is for every graduate to walk away with competency and confidence as they enter the accounting field. This is demonstrated both in the classroom as well as in extracurriculars, such as the Nielsen Accounting Society.
