After graduating from college, Dr. Charlotte Houke moved with her husband several times in his career. She gained experience in tax, financial accounting, managerial accounting, and corporate training. Her diverse background in both the public and private sectors includes seven years as a business consultant/facilitator specializing in helping clients improve the quality of their decision making information.

Before coming to Trevecca, Dr. Houke was a full-time graduate accounting faculty member at Southern Wesleyan (SWU) for eight years. During her tenure, she developed numerous courses for the accounting curriculum. Prior to SWU, she taught accounting for Georgia’s technical college system for over ten years. In her faculty position, she was responsible for starting and growing the accounting program on a new campus in Burke County, Georgia. The accounting programs flourished under her leadership and exceeded the benchmarks set for the program by over 400 percent.

She has published various articles in peer reviewed journals on accounting and finance topics and presented at numerous conferences and workshops. Her greatest joy is helping others through her teaching and life. She loves mentoring students in their research interests and careers and collaborating with other faculty members.

Dr. Houke was raised in Southern California and spent most of her adult life in the Southeast. She has been married to Billy Houke for over 35 years and together they have two married children, Melanie and Alan, and three grandchildren, Jubilee, Preston, and Timothy.
