“Anybody who knows me knows I love accounting– it’s like magic!”
October 10, 2017 – In the cozy JPII lobby, students snacked on brownies and listened to the first “Professors Are People, Too” Q&A of the year, featuring accounting professor Anne Marchetti. Professor Marchetti has done it all – from motorcycle riding to working with MTV.
After earning an undergraduate degree in economics and a master’s degree in accounting, Professor Marchetti has worked in various roles, including implementation of accounting software, consulting, and teaching. One of her favorite consulting jobs was in California for Nickelodeon at the time SpongeBob was just starting to air – she was even offered original concept art done by the artists! Although Professor Marchetti’s consulting work led her to travels across the globe, she won’t hesitate to tell you that her favorite place is New York City.
Professor Marchetti’s enthusiasm for her field cannot be downplayed. It has driven her to author three books and pursue a doctorate in accounting, for which she is currently writing a dissertation on small business fraud.
She encourages her students to find what they love and pursue it: “Find what you’re passionate about, and do it. It’s cliché, but it’s true. Plus, you’ll be a lot better at your job if you love what you do!”
