I decided to pursue an accounting degree after I took principles of financial accounting.  What drew me to accounting was a deeper desire to explore the why behind the how.  I view it as a big puzzle.  Everything has a place and I get to figure out where it goes.

During my undergraduate and MAcc studies, I served as an academic tutor for student-athletes in all business subjects, with a focus in Accounting, Economics, Excel, and Statistics, for the Athletic Department.  I had the opportunity to intern with Childress & Castille, CPAs where I decided that I wanted to explore the tax side of public accounting.

I am a member of the National Eagle Scout Association, Beta Gamma Sigma, and Beta Alpha Psi, where I served as Treasurer and Co-Coordinator of Continuing Professional Education for the 2021-2022 academic year.  During my undergraduate studies I was a member of the Louisiana Tech Honors Program until my graduation in May 2021. At the end of my undergraduate studies I was selected as an Outstanding Senior Scholar for the Louisiana Tech University’s College of Business for the 2020-2021 academic year.  

I am currently studying for the CPA exam and will begin working this Fall in the Tax Department for Heard, McElroy, and Vestal CPAs.
