Michigan State University
My path to becoming an accounting major began with my parent’s entrepreneurship. From a young age, I grew up going to work with my parents and watching them run their businesses. As a result, I became deeply interested in business and knew I want to one day pursue a business degree at college. As I began taking business classes at Michigan State, it became clear to me that I enjoyed work that used my analytical and problem-solving skills. This skill set was a perfect match with accounting-related careers, so I chose to pursue an accounting degree.
In my time at MSU, I have kept myself very busy. I spent 5 years volunteering for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA). Additionally, I worked at the Russell Palmer Career Management Center for 3 years and helped teach a class about the principles of managerial accounting. Over the summers, I was blessed to be able to intern with Spectrum and EY.
After graduating from MSU this spring, I plan on starting full-time at EY working in Assurance in their Detroit office.
