Job Description

I oversee the audits of public and private companies. I draft financial statements, perform testing, review the work of others, and manage both project budgets and project schedules. My teams usually consist of 3-4 people.

Company Description

Grant Thornton LLP (Grant Thornton) is the U.S. member firm of Grant Thornton International Ltd, one of the world’s leading organizations of independent audit, tax and advisory firms. Grant Thornton has revenues in excess of $1.7 billion and operates 59 offices.

Employment History

I started at Grant Thornton after graduating from Seattle University in 2014

Education

Seattle University, BS in Business with Accounting and Marketing majors.

Mentoring Objectives & Scope

A mentee can expect to learn about my current position and career path as well as things I have learned in public accounting and being a young professional. I'm a casual person who can talk about my work, current business events, my college experience, sports, anything. I expect mentees to come with questions or interests that we can discuss. If you find an interesting article send it my way and we can talk about it.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Weekday evenings are my preferred meeting times. I'm open to hold meetings in many locations (driving range, library, bar) in Seattle. I do travel for work so phone calls work too.

Additional Information

I am a first year mentor so we'll figure it out together!
