Job Description

Titles don't mean much in a start-up environment, everyone does everything! My daily activities include cross-functional work with our finance teams, building out our public company-compliant processes, preparing financial statements, and closing our books at month-end.

Mentoring Objectives & Scope

Accounting is a profession that allows you to own the progression of your career - I made the switch from public accounting to industry, and then did an IPO all in the same year! I'd love to be a resource for students to bounce their ideas off of when considering their own career goals, and how accounting makes sense for them.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Virtual meetings are connecting us in ways we weren't able to before, especially considering I am based in San Francisco. Looking forward to the flexibility it allows.
