Congratulations to Dr. Jamie Seitz. She successfully defended her doctoral dissertation, entitled Exploring the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 Whistleblower Provisions and intentions to blow the whistle on financial statement fraud: An empirical examination of the factors that influence intent using the theory of planned behavior.
Seitz is a graduate of USI with a bachelor’s degree in accounting as well as earning her Masters of Science in Management and her Certified Public Accounting license (CPA). Prior to joining USI as instructor in accounting, she worked as a commercial lender, accountant, and both an internal and external auditor.
"The administration at the University of Southern Indiana provided a great deal of support during this process. If not for this support, this achievement would not have been possible. Thank you for believing and investing in me," said Seitz. "I would specifically like to thank Dr. Craig Ehlen, Interim Provost Dr. Mohammad Khayum, Dr. Mark McKnight, and Dr. Kevin Celuch for their guidance, encouragement, and support."
Seitz has been an active member in the Ireland Elementary Parent Teacher Organization, Community Foundation Alliance, and the Pike County Community Foundation. Currently, she is a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) in Dubois County. Seitz is the CAP Liaison between local high schools offering dual credit courses through USI. She was also a member of the Accounting Circle’s Young Professionals before accepting a full-time teaching position at USI.
