I LOVE THIS JOB!
I am originally from
When I entered college, I wasn’t like the majority of other students who had no idea what they were going to study. I knew I was going to be an accountant. I didn’t take one extra class.

There are so many things about the accounting profession that intrigues me. I have chosen to specialize in taxation and as we all know the tax laws are changing by the minute. I feel challenged to stay on top of these changes.

I took the public accountant route but there are so many career paths that one can take with an accounting degree. Public, private, government, controller, bookkeeping, etc…
I enjoy the camaraderie that I share with my fellow accountants at various interest group meetings.

I may never be rich and famous from my chosen profession but I will live comfortably and have the honor of going to work every day enjoying what I do. This profession chose me and I am sure glad it did because I love this job!
