Background

Years Teaching: 7

Ms. Breitbeil earned a Master's in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting from UCCS. White earning her degree, she worked gaining experience at the Schlage Lock Corporation (now IngersollRand Security Technoogies) and at local not-for-profit, the Sisters of St. Francis. She was promoted to Director of Accounting for the Sisters of St. Francis and then Operations Manager at Biotest Laboratories, a local manufacturing firm upon completing her degree. 

For her, it is important to remain active in the accounting community and to teach and learn as she has moved through her career.

She served as President of the local chapter of the IMA and as a Global Board member for the IMA. She currently serves on the Stuart Cameron McLeod Society Board of Governors as the Chair of the Student and Scholarship Committee.

Ms. Breitbeil began teaching at Regis Universit as a Cost Accounting Insturctor in 2015 and she started teaching at PPSC in 2017. It was an honor when, in 2020, she was offered a full-time faculty position.
