She is also Assistant Professor of Accounting and teaches, among other courses, Principles of Accounting I & II, Intermediate Accounting I & II, Auditing, and Individual Income Taxes. Also, she has developed and teaches the Forensics Accounting course. She has been at Franklin Pierce University since September 2005. Prior to joining Franklin Pierce, she taught Accounting courses at New Hampshire Community Technical College in Nashua and was also the Running Start Coordinator there. She has been a Certified Public Accountant in New Hampshire since 1988. Work situations have included Deloitte, Haskins & Sells (now Deloitte & Touche) as well as two regional/local public accounting firms. Since 1997 she has run her own public accounting firm where she has completed audits for Homeowners' Associations, Housing Authorities and Not-for-Profit organizations as well as tax returns for individuals and small business owners.

Before embarking on a career in Public Accounting, Professor Gerard taught elementary and primary grades. She graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a BA in elementary education and taught in Seattle, WA, Brownsville, TX, Brunswick, NY and New York, NY where she earned an MS in Early Childhood Development from Bank Street College. A chance opportunity to work with a friend who was a public accountant led to earning an MS in Accounting from SUNY Albany and employment in New Hampshire with an international public accounting firm.

Other interests include fitness classes, Ballroom Dancing,  and, at times, yoga. The summer of 2007 brought the opportunity to participate in the Walk in the Loire Valley in France for three and a half weeks.
