 Work

"I am a senior manager in our Enterprise Risk Consulting practice. I focus on building strong risk management and governance programs across sectors, as well as supporting our people as they grow in their careers. I was previously based in Washington, DC (Tysons, Virginia office), and am currently based in Los Angeles."

 Community

"One of my favorite opportunities at the firm is supporting my community. I help my local community by serving on our Los Angeles Ripples Task Force, leading year-round community involvement initiatives, including the EY Connect Day program. I’m also a member of Unity, our LGBT+ employee network, where I’m able to connect with colleagues to share lessons and experiences in hopes of making a positive impact and promoting inclusive workspaces."

 Life

"I am passionate about travel! I’ve lived in two wonderful international cities: Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, which have fed my curiosity of the world. I’m very fortunate to be able to travel around the country and the globe to experience different foods, music and perspectives. On the weekends, I spend time with my partner and our dog exploring new hiking paths, beaches and cities in SoCal. I strive to continue pushing limits and growing through exercise, reading and continuous learning."

 Work

"I am a senior manager in our Enterprise Risk Consulting practice, based in the Ernst & Young LLP Los Angeles office. I moved to LA six years ago and previously worked in the McLean, Virginia, office.

 Community

"I previously was the EY Ripples Lead in LA before I took maternity leave. I loved being a part of EY Ripples and making a difference in our local community! I enjoy coaching and mentoring the younger generation and building relationships with my colleagues and clients."

 Life

"I am married and a recent new mom with an 11-month-old boy. I don’t remember what life was like before him. I love to go to the beach (and surf!), hike, cook, travel and, most of all, dance – I previously taught Bollywood fusion dance classes and performed with a dance team. I love living in Southern California and thrive on sunshine!"

Get to know Angela Milano

"In all things, strive to help others achieve their full potential."

 Community

"I am a co-creator of EY Connect Day for EY and collaborated in the creation of EY Ripples. My greatest joy is to develop high-impact programming and relationships that support our communities, develop and engage our people, and strengthen client relationships. Some highlights of my contributions are our work with NFTE (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship), The Trevor Project and Girls Who Code."

 Life

"I’m a seventh-generation Californian, and, while I love my home state, I love to travel around the world. As an example, over the past year, I’ve been to Greece, Belize and Mexico. My degree is in Art History, and David Allan Peters, my partner of
25 years, is an artist. Weekends are spent cooking and baking, visiting the beach and museums, and being with family."
