Additional Information

I began teaching adult education classes (keyboarding, Word, Excel) on a volunteer basis through our church. After I completed my MBA, I had the privilege of teaching as an adjunct faculty in Accounting for six years. During this period I continued to work full-time as a Controller for a reinsurance firm.  In 2012, I accepted a full-time faculty position at Ivy Tech Community College – Northeast.  I have taught a variety of accounting and finance classes.

I am passionate about learning and encouraging others. Having a background working in business, I like to bring real life examples into the classroom to help demonstrate the concepts being taught.

I am a local, born and raised In Fort Wayne, Indiana. Church, family, friends and community are important to me. I am a great believer in giving back to others through volunteer service. I am married to a wonderful guy – John. We have a golden retriever named Buck. Buck is very active and likes the water: lake, puddles, rain, you name it! I like to travel and cook.
