Which MBA courses have helped you the most since joining EY?

Financial Accounting, Corporate Finance, Strategy, and Consultative Selling.

What has been your favorite project or client experience so far?

My favorite client experience is a Finance Transformation project with a major milk producer. The learning curve for this project was steep, given that I knew absolutely nothing about milk production. However, the most interesting aspect I learned about this client was how the company faced similar, if not identical, issues that plagued other clients. I was able to contribute knowledge from prior client projects that helped the project team create sustainable value for the client.

What interests or hobbies do you have outside of work?

I'm an all-around sports fan. I enjoy playing and watching football or basketball the most. As of lately, I've been spending my free time playing golf. Also, I'm an avid runner. I look forward to running a marathon in the near future.

Why did you choose EY?

For me, company culture was most important when it came to my job search. Culture was the first factor that attracted me to EY during the recruiting process. The "people first" culture facilitates career advancement, diversity, and continuous learning. I found that this culture is consistent throughout the organization, and one of the great things about EY.
