Accounting initially sparked my interest because of the numbers, but as my curriculum delved more deeply into the profession, I began to understand that accounting is far more than just bookkeeping. It truly is the language of business and embodies a background that will prove to be the most versatile of all the business degrees.
I plan on graduating with my MSA in summer II of 2016 and in addition having had completed the FAR section of the CPA exam. I then plan on entering the workforce while working towards my other three sections and to gain the requisite experience. After my CPA, I plan on going for my CFA certification because managing money, finance and economics has always been a secondary interest of mine.
I hope to join Plante Moran’s team in Traverse City and reside there as my fondest childhood memories can be linked to that area in one way or another.
