As the Vice President of Riskin & Riskin, PC (public accounting and advisory firm) and Founder/Managing Member of Riskin Advisory, LLC (college financial planning practice), I strive to help others discover their passion, achieve their goals, and fulfill their dreams through personal, financial, and academic ventures.

I am excited to bring practical real world examples from my professional experience into the classroom in order to facilitate reasoned thought and critical thinking analysis among students in Albertus's Accounting and Finance programs.

My ultimate goal is to inspire students of all ages to become better professionals and advisors in the areas of accounting, taxation, and financial planning.
