Dr. Regina Martin

Welcome to the School of Business!

I have been teaching as an Assistant Professor at Spalding University since 2007, and I really enjoy both Spalding and teaching.  I teach a business computer applications class and a variety of accounting classes.  The accounting classes that I normally teach are Principles, Intermediate, Not-for-Profit and Governmental, and Auditing.  I have also taught Tax occasionally.  Accounting is a fast-growing job market and can be a wonderful career choice.  Just think about the fact that every company needs accounting!  I truly believe that accounting can be an exciting and rewarding choice for a college major and a career.

A little about me personally

I am married and have lived in Louisville my whole life and think that it is a wonderful city in which to live.  Although I love to travel and have been to some marvelous places, I really enjoy staying in my hometown of Louisville.  I love animals, and I have a little dog , a 6-pound Maltese – who is my “baby”.  I volunteer at the Louisville Zoo as a Docent, which means teaching classes about animals and interpreting at the animal exhibits.  When I volunteer at the Zoo, I handle all types of smaller animals, such as chinchilla, rat, lizard, screech owl, ferret, etc.  Much to the horror of some of my friends and family, I even handle the snakes.  I also volunteer at the Junior Achievement Finance Park and Biz Town.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening, home improvement projects, and all types of crafts (particularly sewing/quilting and cross-stitch).

A little about my educational and professional background

My professional background includes working as a Systems Development Specialist, a Paralegal, and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), and teaching at another local university.  I also served in the Air National Guard as an Intelligence Operations Specialist for a few years.  I have an Associate of Applied Science, a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, and a Master of Business Administration from Bellarmine University; a Master of Accountancy from University of Louisville; and a Doctorate in Education from Spalding University; all of which were completed while working full-time.  I am a practicing CPA with a small sole-proprietorship business, which enables me to maintain some real-world experience to bring to my teaching.  My professional memberships are Institute of Management Accountants, Kentucky Society of Certified Public Accountants, and American Institute of Certified Public Accounts.  In addition, I actively serve on a committee at the Kentucky Society of Certified Public Accountants.
