In a nutshell, what do you do?

I am an associate auditor where I work with different clients, making sure that all of their financial statements are correct.

Why do you love what you do?

I love the puzzle aspect of accounting. Some people think accounting is boring, but it's like a mystery that needs to be solved and all of the pieces fit perfectly together. I also like meeting and working with a lot of different people.

What did you like about Albion?

I liked the atmosphere and the relationships you could make with professors. I liked all of the people that I got to know. You become a family while here during your four years. It was hard to leave them, but you make lifelong connections with the friends you make.

How did Albion help you get there?

Albion helped me just by getting me out of my comfort zone. I learned a lot about myself and the kind of person I was going to be once I left college.

For me, Albion ...

... was a perfect transition from high school to the real world. You build a network here that can only be built at a small school and that has really helped me get to where I am today.
