Christine Z. J. Noel, PhD, is currently Chair of the Colorado State Board of Accountancy, has been licensed as a CPA in Colorado since 2000, and is a partner at Noel & Boyd LLP, a licensed Colorado CPA firm specializing in small business accounting and consulting services. She was named a Woman to Watch - Leader of Note by the Colorado Society of CPAs in 2016.

With 18 years teaching experience, Noel currently teaches Principles of Financial Accounting, Intermediate Accounting and Managerial Accounting in CMU's MBA program. 

Noel's approach to teaching may be best illustrated by the name of the workshop she presented to accounting educators at a regional conference in 2016: "Active and Collaborative Learning Techniques for Auditing and Other Accounting Classes." Creating a classroom environment that is interesting, fun and engaging will draw students in and create the best opportunity for their success.

Noel's presentations and publications include, "Ethics Frameworks, Perspectives, and Biases: Solving Ethical Dilemmas", "Teaching Ethics Makes a Difference", "Actually Improving Teaching and Professional Development through Simplifying Continuous Improvement Techniques" and "It Is all Fun and Games: Playing Games in the Accounting Classroom."

In her free time, Noel loves to hike and cross country ski in the beautiful mountains of her home state.
