Dr. Morlino joined the Lindsey Wilson College faculty in August 2012. As an associate professor at Lindsey Wilson College, Dr. Morlino shares her business expertise with students and is an active member of the college's Center for Entrepreneurship Advisory Board, the college's Quality Enhancement Program, Lindsey Writes, and serves as the faculty adviser for Phi Beta Lambda.

She has been an active participant in the world of business her entire life, starting with the family businesses in Mississippi. Having grown up in a small, farming community in the Delta of Mississippi, she learned early on that owning, operating, and managing businesses in various industries was something she wanted to be a part of.

She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi. After graduation from Mississippi State University, Dr. Morlino continued her education at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she earned a Master of Science degree. After graduating from LSU, Dr. Morlino began her career in Little Rock, Arkansas, as the State Statistician for the United States Department of Agriculture. Her career path took her from Little Rock to Atlanta where she worked for many years as an Actuarial Analyst for a large, publicly held corporation in the financial services industry. A new baby changed her career path and Dr. Morlino was able to merge her analytical skills with a privately held corporation located in the Atlanta suburbs. As an adjunct professor of economics at a local college, she realized teaching was her passion so she decided to pursue her doctoral degree and entered the University of Georgia's graduate program in Economics. At the time, the University of Georgia did not offer classes in an online format so she completed her d octoral degree at Capella University with her dissertation, A Study of CEO Compensation and Firm Performance in the U.S. Airline Industry.

In her spare time, Dr. Morlino enjoys spending time with her friends and family.
