Hello! My primary responsibility at Evangel is teaching and advising accounting majors. My goal is to make sure accounting majors are prepared to enter public, private, or governmental accounting. We start working toward that early in the first year of studies. Please contact me if you have any questions about the accounting program. In recent years, my interest has turned toward marketing, and I have discovered my creative strength. I find teaching two marketing classes and working with the Business Department’s PR team rewarding.
