Charlotte L. Hoopes

Assistant Professor

The Williams School at Washington and Lee University 

In the summer of 2024, I will be joining  the Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics at Washington and Lee University as an Assistant Professor. I was on the faculty at the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce from 2021 to 2024, and I have also taught at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. 

To date, my research has primarily focused on person-environment (P-E) fit, which I use as a framework to better understand how individuals relate with one another, their jobs, and the organizations of which they are a part. In addition to P-E fit, I have done research on topics related to communication, leadership, and teams. I have also authored business case studies and an OER textbook. 

I earned my PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2018), my MBA from Brigham Young University (2011), and my B.S. in Accounting and Spanish, with honors, from Brigham Young University (2005). 

After earning my PhD, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business (2018-2021). Before academia, I worked in accounting and finance positions at Ernst & Young (Boston office),, and Zions Bancorporation.
