Kimberli Ishaug is a distinguished service professor in the Department of Accounting. She received a bachelor's degree and an M.B.A. in accounting from the University of Minnesota. While an undergraduate at the university, she had the opportunity to intern at Grant Thornton LLP in their state and local tax department. Upon graduation, she accepted an offer of a full-time position with the firm, ultimately working there for 12 years as staff accountant, senior accountant, manager and, eventually, senior manager.

While at Grant Thornton, Ishaug worked on a wide variety of publicly traded and privately held companies in the middle market. Her specialty industries included franchise businesses, software, manufacturing and hospitality, for which she primarily managed audits but also was involved in consulting engagements or merger and acquisition deals.

Ishaug left Grant Thornton in 2007 to begin teaching. At St. Mary's University-Minnesota, she taught intermediate accounting, advanced accounting and auditing, and also took in a financial reporting role at Rimage Corporation for one year while teaching. After leaving Rimage, she joined Certes Financial Pros in a consulting role.

In 2011, Ishaug joined the university, where she teaches an Emerging Issues in Financial Reporting class for the UST Master of Science degree in Accounting Program, intermediate accounting classes for the Evening UST MBA Program and the Undergraduate Program.
