“Being nice to people is the easiest career competitive advantage."


" I’m a People Advisory Services manager at Ernst & Young LLP, based out of San Francisco by way of Nashville and Chicago. I also recently spent a year on a rotation with the Americas Innovation team. "


"With my recent role in Americas Innovation, I’ve had an inside look at the incredible work EY is doing to help our clients navigate a continuously disruptive market and the fascinating new products and tools we’re developing. As a cherry on top, I helped support the EY Bay Area Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards by participating in interviews with founders and at the awards ceremony. I look forward to getting more involved with EY Ripples and giving back to the Bay."


"I’m fairly new to the Bay Area after moving from Chicago in June 2021, but I have already felt at home. I love live music and the privilege to go out and see shows again. This past year has brought a lot of joy back to my life — plus, it’s been a great way to explore this beautiful new city! I play a little piano as well, and otherwise like to spend my down time traveling, hiking and reading — with a goal to read 30 books this year. "

Additionally, I love the volunteering opportunities offered through EY Connect Day, specifically those focused on cleaning our beautiful Bay Area beaches and restoring natural habitats."


"I moved to the Bay Area from Chisinau, Moldova and I cannot get enough of the beauty in this region! I enjoy spending time in nature by hiking, outdoor cycling, exploring the coast and working out."

"I'm a Tax senior, based in the San Jose office, working mainly in the International Tax practice."


"Connectivity and inclusivity are my passion. I take any opportunity to foster meaningful experiences for those in my office and those around me. This includes hosting paint nights, game nights, picnics, happy hours and even reviving our EY San Jose softball team! I also took an active role when our office sponsored the Stars and Strides 10K/5K to benefit frontline workers and aid in the administration of COVID-19 vaccines."


"I live for adventure! Originally from New Hampshire, it's exciting to explore all that the Bay Area has to offer. I have adopted a mindset that there is nothing I can't do, so my list of hobbies is endless, from hiking and ice skating to woodworking and mechanics!"

I also love helping my local Bay Area community through volunteer opportunities, such as EY Connect days, where we’ve helped aspiring youth foster business skills, enable job readiness for struggling women and cleaned up beaches!"


"Life has been a great journey taking me to wonderful destinations. I’ve lived in seven cities across three countries while traveling to eat delicious food and hiking to burn off the calories! Leveraging the flexibility of a global organization, I’ve worked in three EY offices (San Francisco, Chicago and Toronto) while growing from an intern right out of my MBA program to a manager over a six-year period. I look forward to celebrating many more career and personal milestones with EY!"

"Sports have been integral to my life since I was 5 years old. I’ve played football and basketball and ran track at the Division I level in college. I have the utmost respect for athletes because I understand the mental and physical strength it takes to be great at what you do."
