Accounting is not only the "language of business" (so ALL business majors need to know it), it is a great career. I was lucky enough to have a professor at a community college help me choose accounting as my major and I will be forever grateful...and I hope to "pay it forward." Helping students meet their educational and professional goals is my #1 priority. My classes are interactive and collaborative...and I hope fun!

Before Joining the staff at Cypress College, I taught at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, University of LaVerne, and Mt. San Antonio College. I gained accounting experience with one of the four largest international accounting firms for my Certified Public Accountant license and have had my own accounting practice. Accounting has provided me with a constantly changing career, which is great for me because I get bored easily!
I love any activity that involves being outdoors. I have two , Zena and our 'foster-that-became-ours', 12 year-old Dusty. I volunteer regularly at the California German Shorthair Pointer Rescue. My favorite outdoor place to be is anywhere near a large body of water, especially where my dogs can swim!
