Employment History

Mentoring Objectives & Scope

Students can expect education and discussion around the public accounting profession, specifically the audit track, and perspectives from someone with a nontraditional path to the profession (chemistry to accounting). My mentorship style involves active listening, free flowing conversation, and openness to sharing life experiences. Success as a mentor would be helping the mentee discern their desired career approach as they prepare to exit the university context and begin their professional life.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Virtual is preferred, however, can be available in-person as needed. Would prefer meetings during lunch hours or early afternoon, but can be flexible with advance notice.
