Profile

Obtaining the 1st class honor, I was granted an opportunity to step into the academic arena after the university council approved me to be a full-time lecturer in the School of Accountancy at University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, Thailand, and granted the scholarship to pursue master degree and Ph.D. aboard. Teaching for two years, it is not only about doing my job but I had my mission according to my ideology to inculcate all the best things for my students by shaping them into well-educated people. Additionally, working at the university enable me to be aware that I am to take this path for the whole life; and in going to higher level in this path, I must be very well-educated. For this reason, I took the next step attending Master of Science in Accountancy and Financial Management at University of San Diego, USA. After having received the master degree, I came back to my home country and experienced both academic works (i.e. teaching, writing a book, conducting research, and being an academician at Federation of Accounting Professions) and administrative works, such as secretary and head of some projects.
