This week, the Xavier Newswire sat down with Accounting professor Ann Randolph.

  • Xavier Newswire: What drew you to Xavier?
  • Ann Randolph: My husband, David, teaches in the Accountancy Department at Xavier. I had enjoyed teaching at Miami University and Indiana University in the past, so when the opportunity arose here at Xavier, I was happy to get back into the classroom.
  • XN: What was your experience as an accountant for large companies such as Skyline Chili like? Did you work for any other companies?
  • AR: I worked for Ernst & Young in Cincinnati as a CPA before I entered the academic world. My job was to audit the financial statements for a variety of clients. Some of the clients that you would recognize are Skyline Chili, College of Mount St. Joseph and many of the United Way agencies.
  • XN: What inspired your choice to move from professional  accounting to teaching?
  • AR: My father was a college professor in the School of Business at Murray State University (he is retired now). I grew up seeing the lifestyle that he had and how much he enjoyed working with students. I knew that I would enjoy it as well. I also knew that it would afford me some flexibility as I was raising my two children, John and Hope.
  • XN: Where did you grow up?
  • AR: I grew up in Murray, Ky.
  • XN: Where did you go to college and what did you study?
  • AR: I attended the university of Kentucky and majored in accounting. Later I attended Miami University and earned a Master's degree.
  • XN: What is something most people do not know about you?
  • AR: I married my high school sweetheart and I also happen to be standing next to him in our kindergarten picture!
  • XN: What do you enjoy to do in your free time? AR: I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my kids participate in their sports activities and reading good books.
