Loyola University Maryland
I decided I wanted to pursue a career in accounting after enrolling in an introductory course provided by my high school. I took the class per the suggestion of my mother, an accountant herself, who believed I would excel in the class due to my analytical and organized nature. After taking this course, I enjoyed discovering how an accounting career allowed for me to use my traits to aid an organization in a wide array of business endeavors. My time at Loyola further developed my passion for accounting and proved to me that I was pursuing a career path that would allow for me to enjoy going to work every day.
During my time at Loyola, I was the Chair of Community Service and Presentations for Beta Alpha Psi in which I organized service events for the chapter, including tutoring sessions. I also volunteered as an Income Tax Assistant in which I helped prepare tax returns for low-income members of the Baltimore Community. I was also a member of the business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi, a tour guide for Undergraduate Admissions, and the Chief Financial Officer for the Robotics Club. One of the accomplishments I am most proud of during my time at Loyola was being awarded 2nd Place in my University’s Pitch Competition as a sophomore. I partnered with a friend in the engineering department, and we developed an after-school program that would teach STEM and business skills to local elementary and middle schoolers. We presented our pitch to peers and faculty at Loyola and competed against over 40 teams. Unfortunately, we were unable to develop the program as intended due to COVID.
I have previously interned in multiple audit roles including as an internal audit intern for Fairfax County Public School’s Office of the Auditor General, SC&H Group and EY. I am very excited to be starting full-time with EY in the fall in Tysons Corner, VA with the Assurance service line.
