In 2008, she was recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education as the Mississippi Professor of the Year. She also plays a valuable role in helping Millsaps graduates secure jobs with leading accounting firms and established an executive shadowing program for accounting students.
Burke holds a B.B.A. and an M.S. in accounting from Texas Tech University and a Ph.D. from Oklahoma State University. She joined the Millsaps faculty in 1995.
Her research interests include the labor market for academics, assurance services, expectations formation and gender issues. Her research has been published in multiple publications including Advances in Accounting, Southern Economic Journal, Journal of Information Systems, Journal of Service Marketing and Internal Auditing.
