Institution: University of Arizona
I’m originally from San Diego, CA, and attended the University of Arizona on an academic scholarship. At Arizona I majored in Accounting, Finance and Entrepreneurship with a minor in Spanish, with the hopes of one day creating and owning my own portfolio of businesses. The summer after my junior year, I completed a LAUNCH internship with Ernst & Young. My experience with the firm was amazing and I was fortunate to receive a return offer for a client serving internship after my senior year. Subsequently, I was accepted into their Global Student Experience program and did my audit internship in Buenos Aires, Argentina this past summer. My time at EY was phenomenal and two of my most valuable takeaways were an understanding that 1) the ability to work as a team is the most important determinant of success in business and 2) audit isn’t the profession for me. Based on this I’ll be pursuing full time positions in advisory and consulting this fall. Feel free to reach out with questions about anything!
