In a nutshell, what do you do?

I'm part of a team that works to audit clients' financial statements to ensure accuracy, as well as compliance to any applicable regulations.

Why do you love what you do?

Every new client presents a new set of challenges. Doing this kind of contract work for some of the biggest, most recognizable brands is extremely exciting. Add to this, the clients that are tomorrow's next great company, and it makes for very exciting work and valuable experiences.

What did you like most about Albion?

To think that some of my most valuable personal connections at Albion are with professors and staff points to the commitment of the faculty to students.

How did Albion help you get to where you want to be?

Preparation, preparation, preparation. Everything from mock-interviews, meet-and-greets with successful alumni, and opportunities build my resume with amazing experiences such as Sup de V.

For me Albion…

...stands alone because of its genuine commitment to the success of its students. I know my professors have lost sleep or time at home to mentor me. I'm extremely grateful because that has helped me reach my goals and set new, more ambitious ones.
