Jane Poulin , ‘84, CPA, charted a career that has taken her from small town New Hampshire to China, Japan, Austria, Spain, Germany and Italy. Now serving as the Associate Chief Accountant at the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), she interprets and advises on the application of accounting and auditing standards.

She has also served in the private sector as chief accounting officer of Corning, Inc., and in accounting positions at Ernst and Young and KPMG.

Brad Allen, the PSU AMA chapter faculty advisor, said Dudek and Poulin define what Plymouth State strives for in providing a business education.

“These Hall of Fame recipients represent what is possible while studying at Plymouth State University in the College of Business Administration,” Allen said. “Students gain so much from interacting with alumni as they share common trials and experiences. Many students have shared with me how inspirational it is to envision what is possible with solid academic experience and hard work.”

The PSU AMA chapter works closely with business graduates to facilitate career and placement information, coordinating job programs, internships and assisting in the preparation of career programs for members.
