How did you reach your current position?
During the fall of my senior year at Miami, I received an offer from the EY Technology Risk practice in Cincinnati. I spent three years in that office, rising from the staff rank to senior. In the summer of 2022, I had the opportunity to transfer within EY to our Government & Public Sector practice in the Washington, D.C. area. In this practice, I work with a variety of federal agencies. In July of 2023, I will celebrate my fourth work anniversary with EY.
How did Miami University set you up for success in your career?
The courses I took at Miami, both inside and outside of the Farmer School of Business, equipped me with critical-thinking skills, technical skills, a winning mindset, and the adaptability I need to succeed. Auditing and consulting require the ability to think outside of the box to solve complex problems, and Miami’s coursework and extracurricular activities were instrumental in developing my talents in this area. My professors were dedicated to my success and gave me incredible opportunities to leverage their experiences in the working world for my benefit. Miami also gave me a dedicated community of fellow students who continually pushed me to grow and improve. I will be forever grateful to my alma mater.
What is your best piece of career advice for current college students?
Focus on your holistic student experience. Most firms are not going to obsess over your GPA, but they will take notice of the activities you were involved in on- and off-campus and the unique experiences you had while you were a student. Join student organizations, study abroad, and have fun.
