Part Time Faculty

Office: Online Only



I have a Bachelor’s degree from University of Washington and Master’s degree from Central Michigan University. I retired from Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) in 2002 after 32 years. I was a partner in Pacific Northwest Consultants, LLC, a Firm of Certified Public Accountants, but resigned to return to federal government work. I worked part time for Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) in 2010-2011 and again 2016-2018. I started teaching part time at Highline College in 1978 and on my retirement from DCAA, in 2002, I joined Highline accounting faculty full time. I have taught all of the accounting classes offered at Highline. I was the Accounting Department Coordinator from 2005 to 2013. I have also taught higher level accounting classes for the University of Washington extension program. I am a Certified Public Accountant-Retired (CPA-Retired), Certified Management Accountant (CMA), and Certified Global Management Accountant (CGMA). In 2003, I was appointed to the Washington State Board of Accountancy by Governor Gary Lock. I was a member of the Washington State Board of Accountancy for 10 years. I retired as Highline tenured faculty on December 31, 2014, so I no longer have an on-campus office. Currently, I do the bookkeeping for nonprofits.

Email me your question(s) and I'll respond and, if necessary, we can agree to an appointment and we can arrange to meet.
