I received my BBA in accounting from Texas Tech University. I worked for the Bank of New York in NYC as a mutual fund accountant for a year before moving back to Texas. Once in Texas, I completed my MBA with an emphasis in Management & Leadership in 2008. I began the PhD in Personal Financial Planning at Texas Tech University and graduated in August. I have 4 years of teaching experience, both online and face-to-face. I enjoy developing courses as well as implementing an engaged learning classroom environment. I just moved from Texas in June and I am excited to be a part of UVU's nationally recognized Personal Financial Planning program.
