Aside from facilitating student learning in language (ESL (English as a second language), and, now, beginning Spanish), which I really enjoy doing, a good chunk of my professional working experience was spent working in managerial accounting and financial/operations reporting with a large multinational organization. My roles varied over the years and have included that of plant accounting manager, finance manager, division general accounting manager, and division operations finance lead.  As a professional in managerial accounting, I became very well acquainted and worked through the business and planning cycle of a major, highly complex organization. I have had extensive experience in general ledger accounting and analysis, management of month-end close activities, forecasting activities, internal financial statement analysis, cost accounting, capital and fixed asset tracking, and operations (manufacturing) reporting and analysis. I look forward to sharing that experience and knowledge with my students.
