I am a partner at the fifth largest accounting and consulting firm worldwide.
Day to Day
I specialize in providing assurance services including audits of financial statements and internal controls, business advisory consulting and other attestation services for both public and private companies. I am also the National Retail and Consumer Business industry leader. I have experience in the following industry market segments: licensing, apparel and footwear, skincare/cosmetics, jewelry, and bedding. I have extensive experience working with SEC reporting companies.
Skills & Qualities Beyond School
Be familiar with technology and willing to constantly learn new technologies to keep up with the changing industry. I speak Russian fluently which has given me the opportunity to take on international liaison roles. Having language skills or other talents outside of the direct field can make you uniquely useful. Embrace change and be willing to adapt. Teamwork and collaboration is key.
