Going Over the Books with Accounting Professor Andrea Roberts

Originally hailing from the Maryland side of Washington, D.C., Accounting Professor Andrea Roberts views her position at McIntire as the fortunate confluence of opportunities and timing. Indeed, there may be a kind of destiny to her arrival. She had hoped to attend UVA as an undergrad, and although admitted as an out-of-state student, finances prevented her from studying here. Her educational journey led her to earn a B.S. in Accounting from Towson University and spend the following five years working at Ernst & Young. After deciding she wanted a life in academia, she pursued a Ph.D. in Accountancy from The George Washington University and held her first academic post at Boston College. After nearly a decade teaching in Boston, she sought to return to the mid-Atlantic to be closer to family, yet securing employment in Charlottesville originally seemed like an unlikely possibility to her.
