After unexpectedly discovering a passion for accounting, I kept exploring and found my way to Grant Thornton.
My path started at my first accounting class. It was a prerequisite for my international business focus, but I was surprised to find it fascinating. The class showed me that accounting is the opposite of what I had expected, which was basically clicking away at numbers all day. Instead, I found that accounting offers the challenge of figuring out answers to business questions. So who falls in love with accounting? I did.
The next natural steps were switching to an accounting major and joining the professional honors fraternity, Beta Alpha Psi. One fraternity requirement was visiting accounting firms. My favorite visit was to Grant Thornton. The people in the Melville, N.Y., office, were friendly and helpful, and I kept Grant Thornton in mind as I continued my studies.
