Leslie Blix began the doctoral program in the fall of 2014. Prior to her acceptance she graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. She learned within her junior year at UCONN her love of accounting so after graduation she enrolled at Hodges University where she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Accounting. She continued her education of accounting and received her Master of Accountancy at Queen’s College, CUNY in 2007. She accepted a job with KPMG LLP where she worked in the audit practice for seven years acquiring knowledge within various industries. During her time with KPMG LLP she grew a fondness for teaching others. It was then that she knew she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps and pursue a teaching and research career. Currently her interests include professional judgment and decision making in the audit field. In her spare time, Leslie loves to run full and half marathons, travel and improve her knowledge of cuisine.
