I initially joined the faculty at the College of Business in May of 2014 as an Adjunct Professor. In August of 2016, I joined the full-time faculty as an Assistant Professor of Accounting. I currently teach Business Law I and II and Tax I. I have previously taught Business Law II, Tax I, and Employee Benefits and Retirement Planning.

I earned a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in tax from Georgetown University Law Center in 2003 and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Illinois College of Law in 1993. I am also a licensed attorney. Prior to joining the full-time faculty at GSU, I practiced law for over 20 years. Most recently, I served as the Deputy General Counsel for Income Tax Litigation for the Illinois Department of Revenue. For several years, I have also served as an officer and member on committees of professional associations, including the Illinois State Bar Association and Chicago Bar Association, and have taught numerous Continuing Legal Education courses.

 My recent publications include articles analyzing the federal bonus depreciation and Section 179 deductions and their efficacy in stimulating business investment and examining the shared responsibility payment under the Affordable Care Act and how it relates to tax dependents. My current interests in research and publication involve the state taxation of sales of marijuana in states where medical and other uses have been legalized and the current state of federal taxation of international communications income.
