The most important skill that will lead to future success is an ability to interact well with people.

Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
I graduated from college in 1995 and started working at Ernst & Young LLP.
At EY, I worked on public and private company audits in numerous industries from large SEC registrants to non-profit companies to pension plan audits.
I received an early promotion to manager in 1999. In 2000 I entered the professional accounting fellowship program in the Division of Corporation Finance (DCF) at the SEC.
In 2002, I decided to remain with the SEC as I struggled with my health until I received a Lyme disease diagnosis in 2006.
In 2004, I was promoted to Branch Chief in the Telecommunications industry office in DCF and led a team of 5-7 accountants in reviewing public company filings.
In 2010, I was promoted to the Division's Office of Chief Accountant where I served as an Associate Chief Accountant primarily responsible for the financial services and telecommunications industries.
From 2012 to 2018, I was an Associate Director and served in multiple roles that included starting and leading a new office and overseeing several industry offices.
In 2018, I was named Chief Accountant of DCF and in 2019 was asked to lead the Disclosure Review Program in DCF as its Director. In 2020, I joined PwC as partner.

Day to Day

I worked at the Securities and Exchange Commission for almost 20 years. In 2020, I started with PwC during the coronavirus crisis which has presented its challenges. Unfortunately, my typical day is currently working from home and interacting with my team virtually. Stay tuned...

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Interpersonal skills—Starting a new job during Covid-19 restrictions has kept me working from home with limited opportunities to engage with my new team except for virtually. However, the most important skill that will lead to future success is an ability to interact well with people. That skill has served me well over my career.

The Noise I Shed

From Friends:

"You shouldn't be a CPA—all you will be doing is working with numbers (doing math) and working by yourself."
