I’ve always been attracted to detail-oriented, problem-solving subjects, and while I was in high school, I got an opportunity to take two accounting courses. After my experience in these classes, I felt that I could envision myself pursuing a career in accounting. I decided to do so at Miami University, where I had the privilege of gaining an accounting education at the Farmer School of Business. In addition to the fantastic education, I was able to enjoy several extracurricular activities that allowed me to apply my accounting skills outside of the classroom. For example, during all four years of my undergraduate education, I interned at the First Miami Student and Alumni Credit Union, where I was able to get leadership experience as a teller and treasurer. I also enjoyed being the treasurer of the Art Museum Student Organization, which allowed me to apply business skills in a less ‘business-traditional’ environment. These undergraduate experiences, both academic and extracurricular, have helped me attain internships at Dyer Hughes & Roche, Inc., Hill Barth & King, and KeyBank. After graduation, I will have the privilege of returning to KeyBank in a permanent position in their risk review group.
