Biography Section

Biography and Education

I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in accounting from BYU, followed by several years spent working as an auditor with KPMG. I received my Ph.D. from Bentley University in 2013 and have been at Texas State University since.

Teaching Interests

I am passionate about teaching our undergraduate and graduate auditing courses.

Research Interests

My research interests are primarily in the areas of auditing and financial reporting. More specifically, my topical focus is on auditor judgment and decision-making, audit policy and procedures, issues surrounding the auditing and reporting of fair values, and auditing within the broker-dealer industry. My methodological approaches are diverse, including experimental/behavioral, experiential survey, and archival research methods.
