Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I might not be in Assurance or Tax, but I can still answer questions about recruiting, work/life balance, the CPA, and my experience at the firm. I'm probably better suited to answer questions about IT audit, IT compliance, and program management. It is my expectation that students will take ownership of this relationship and reach out with questions.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Given the state of the world, we can always meet for virtual coffee or lunch. Also feel free to email me with any questions.
