Institution: Washington University in St. Louis
Originally from Claremont, California, I ventured out to the Midwest to earn my undergraduate degree from the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis. At WashU, I majored in Accounting, played Varsity Soccer, and participated in Greek Life. While my time in St. Louis was transformative, I was excited by the prospect of returning back to southern California to earn my Master of Accounting degree, and was thrilled once I was accepted. After I finish my degree here at USC, I will start work at Deloitte in their Audit Division in Los Angeles in September of 2019. The biggest draw to USC for me, aside from the location and contagious school spirit, was the excellent reputation of the Accounting Program coupled with the quality of such highly distinguished professors. So far, each class has proven to be incredibly valuable, and I have discovered passions I have for different topics of study that I didn’t know I was interested in before. The Leventhal School of Accounting is a wonderful place to get an advanced degree from, and I’d be happy to chat with anyone who is considering joining the Trojan family!
