Katie has a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and a Masters of Science in Finance from Sam Houston State University. She started her professional career with Ernst & Young, LLP in Houston, TX and later with Grant Thornton, LLP in Philadelphia, PA. After more than five years as an auditor in public accounting, she transitioned into the classroom and has never looked back. Her experiences as an auditor allowed her the opportunity to view an organization from the top down. This view afforded her with an increased understanding of accounting and financial reporting, which she loves sharing with her students each semester. She has been a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) for 17 years. Interesting fact, she took the last paper exam in 2003 before the exam was computerized! Katie joined the Becker team in 2008. She has taught, BEC, AUD, and FAR for the CPA exam and teaches for the CMA exam. In addition, she has been involved in various projects including course development, editing, and updating as a subject matter expect since 2019.
