Roberts holds the position of Post University’s Assistant Program Manager of Accounting. Her previous position at Post University was as an Associate Faculty in Accounting. Her course specialties at the university level include Financial Accounting, Individual Taxation, and Corporate Taxation.
Instead of providing the answers to students, Roberts always states “Let’s step back and see what is really going on here.” She strives to get her students to understand the theory behind what is being asked. With that understanding, they can then answer the question themselves. Always bringing a sense of humor to her class, Roberts is known to actually make taxation fun!
Roberts is actively involved in her local community, volunteering on a variety of councils for the historic district of Torrington. She is also the Treasurer of the NW CT Chamber Education Foundation, and also serves as the Education Committee Chairperson for the CT Chapter of the National Association of Tax Professionals. She is also a current member of the CT Department of Revenue External Editorial Board.
Roberts is married with grown children. She enjoys horror movies and classic rock music. When not working, her favorite pastime is spending time with her sons or listening to her husband singing and playing his guitar.
Robert’s major interests are in personal taxation. She is specifically interested in seeing how tax law actually impacts individual taxpayers versus how Congress thinks it is going to impact individual taxpayers.
Roberts has published many tax related articles over the years. Her work can be found in TaxPro Journal, a publication of the National Association of Tax Professionals.
She has also been interviewed many time by national media such as Forbes, Business Week, and Fox Business News, in regard to the impact of the economy on the individual taxpayer.
