    I am the advisor for the Student Accounting Association. It's purpose is to provided student with an opportunity to meet with and learn from professional accountants, to share what they have learned with the community and to support and learn from one another through study groups. The theme for the 2005-06 Academic Year is Personal Financial Planning. The association hold an organizational meeting in the first week of each semester to plan and organize the activities for that semester. Flyers are distributed to all accounting classes.

    Another very worthwhile activity is our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Site.This program provides free income tax preparation training to students, who then in turn assist individuals with income less the 32,000 in preparing their federal and state income tax. Students may earn Coop academic credit for participating. The program begins recruiting in November and training starts in January. Interested students should contract Mary Falkey (falkeymx@pgcc.edu 301-322-0796)
     Information on the accounting profession and free student memberships are available from the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants), MACPA (Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants) and the IMA (Institute of Management Accountants). The AICPA site also have articles about accounting and the MACPA has a really nice student newsletter -- complete with job and internship advertisements.  

Brief Autobiography

Yes, that is my cat on the computer and yes she does do that. We share our Greenbelt home with another cat and my husband. Our two sons ( both ERHS graduates and one a PGCC graduate) are grown.

I was born and raised in San Joaquin County, California (Gallo country) After graduating with a bachelor's degree in extremely liberal arts from Raymond College, University of the Pacific, in 1974 I moved to the Washington DC area. For the next 7 years I worked in the banking industry. I started my family and graduate school in 1979. (so I have some idea of what it takes to raise kids, go to school &work). I earned a Master's in Accounting from George Washington University in 1981 and passed the CPA exam that same year.   After a few years in construction and consulting, I began teaching here at PGCC.

When I am not harassing students or my cat, I'm likely to be playing either with my computer or in my garden.
