A member of the Southern Wesleyan faculty since 2013, Horne also serves as the Program Director for the Bachelor of Science in Business online program and as the Center for Teaching Excellence Adjunct Faculty Coordinator.
Horne brings significant private sector experience in accounting to her classes taught at Southern Wesleyan. She currently serves as a member of the Institute of Management Accountants and American Accounting Association.
Additionally, she has published on topics ranging from mentoring and monitoring (M&M) faculty for student success to discovering practical applications of the balanced scorecard, bridging the gap between theory and practice.
A recent accomplishment of Horne involves a collaborative effort with the Center for Teaching Excellence. She wrote a training program for faculty mentors that guides them in mentoring and coaching adjunct faculty in the online programs across the University. As part of this initiative, weekly assessments are recorded with a final summative assessment at the end of each term. Nine SWU faculty mentors have been trained and are currently mentoring approximately 50 adjunct faculty.
