Olivia Melton

Visiting Professor of Accounting

After graduating from Augustana, Olivia Melton worked for a small accounting firm in Geneseo, Ill., where she lives with her husband, three children and their pudgy mini-poodle. 

She then pursued her CPA and a master’s in accountancy from Western Illinois University with the hopes of teaching at the collegiate level. After achieving both, she has served as an adjunct instructor for Western Illinois University in Moline and St. Ambrose University in Davenport. 

Olivia also is the proprietor of her own CPA firm where she provides tax, payroll and bookkeeping, among other
accounting services. 

Olivia is particularly interested in the subjects of taxation and fraud. She loves reading, music and traveling with her family.
