My road in life has taken me all over.
I spent 11 years at EY.
I left to work with at the FASB for two years as an accounting fellow.
I came back to EY for 2 months as a partner.
I then had the opportunity to work at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for 7 years, where I saw a lot of different aspects of the SEC: regulations, oversight, enforcement, etc.
I returned to EY.

Day to Day

I would have to say that I am not sure I have a typical day. Our profession is very cyclical based on financial reporting time frames. In any one day I can be reviewing a publication on accounting, meeting with the FASB on an accounting standard setting issue or helping an engagement team on a complex accounting matter. I think this is one of the things that attracts me to the profession.
