"I’m part of the Assurance Services division as an audit senior, based in our Dallas office at Ernst & Young LLP. I came to the United States in March of 2022, from South Africa."
"I was privileged to have been part of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Central Plains Awards. By participating and assisting the EY team at the awards ceremony, I realized how far reaching and meaningful the firm’s positive influence can be to those in our community. I can’t wait to get involved in more initiatives and opportunities the firm has to offer by which I can give of myself to help build a better working world."
"Since moving to the US, I have been astonished by the generosity and kindness my friends have extended to me and feel lucky to call this beautiful city and state home. I enjoy spending my time playing golf or pickle ball with friends or just exploring all the incredible restaurants Dallas has to offer. Traveling has always been one of my passions and my goal is to visit all 50 states."
"I am a manager focused on Business Transformation in our Financial Services Organization Consulting practice. I’m based in Dallas, Texas."
"Texas is known for favorable business conditions, and I’ve seen firsthand innovation take off in my backyard. Each year I jump at the opportunity to interview Dallas-based companies making waves in the financial services sector for the firm’s Entrepreneur Of The Year® Central Plains Program. I’m also a big believer in building community though connection. My favorite way of developing these relationships over the years has been with my mentors and mentees in the Banking Women’s Network."
"I channel my competitive energy into running marathons around the globe. This goes hand in hand with my favorite charity, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). I’ve run three marathons on the JDRF charity team and get a step closer to helping cure Type 1 diabetes (T1D) every time. My EY colleagues generously support these ventures, and I’ve also made connections with teammates personally impacted by T1D."
"I work in our Forensic Technology practice as a senior manager. I enjoy focusing on innovation and specialize in robotics and AI."
"I was fortunate to grow up in a family that emphasized the importance of community and am grateful to work for EY, a firm that continuously supports giving back. I am an adjunct professor at SMU where I try to pass on the many lessons my coaches, mentors and sponsors have shared with me. Additionally, I try to honor my late father’s memory by serving as a Wish Granter for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and as a board member for the American Cancer Society North Texas Chapter."
"I enjoy staying active in the city by running on the Katy Trail, rowing on White Rock Lake and fitting in as many rounds of golf as I can."
"I’m the Revenue Management and Billing Solution Leader in Oracle Services at Ernst & Young LLP, based in the Dallas office."
"Giving back to the community and being committed to serving is one of my personal goals. I am passionate about building trusted relationships, mentoring and helping people achieve more than they thought they could be. I am grateful for my recent appointment as an Advisory Board member for Best Buddies International, a non-profit dedicated to fostering one-to-one friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities."
"Left my hometown Kolkata, India in 1996 and lived in several cities across Australia and the US before finally settling in Dallas. I’m married with two children - a14-year-old son and 6-year-old chocolate lab who share the same birth date! We love to travel, explore new cultures and cuisines. I also enjoy capturing moments through photography."
