Bio
Professor Fisher started her career with PwC’s national tax practice in Washington, DC. She was later assigned to a position abroad with PwC's international tax practice in London. After returning from London, she accepted a position with Congress as an accountant for the Joint Committee on Taxation. During her time on the Hill, she advised the House Ways & Means Committee, Senate Finance Committee, and other members of Congress on pending tax legislation. She also participated in the congressional investigation of Enron Corporation and helped draft several of the policy recommendations that were later adopted as part of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004. Prior to joining the faculty at Kogod, Professor Fisher spent six years teaching tax and accounting courses at the University of Pittsburgh. While teaching at Pitt, she created two new courses for the Masters of Taxation program—Tax Policy and International Taxation. She also developed an international tax and accounting course for undergraduate students that she taught in London as part of the Pitt Study Abroad program. Professor Fisher is a licensed C.P.A. in Pennsylvania and Virginia.
