Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    From the very beginning, I loved any and all sports.

  • 2.

    Through my many years of organized sports in elementary/high school, I learned the importance of hard work, commitment, dedication, and selflessness; always putting the team's goals above your own.

  • 3.

    In high school, I decided to take an accounting class. I was immediately interested in the material and proceeded to take every business class that my high school offered.

  • 4.

    I was accepted into the Smeal College of Business at Penn State to hopefully further my business education. However, I wanted to continue my athletic career into college...

  • 5.

    During my senior year of high school, I was offered a an opportunity to walk-on (i.e. no scholarship) to the Penn State Men's Basketball team.

  • 6.

    My Penn State athletic career provided me with some of the most valuable lessons of my life and taught me importance of positivity, sacrifice, and organization.

  • 7.

    I applied these life lessons to my academic career at Penn State which led me to apply and be accepted into the Integrated Masters of Accounting (MAcc) program.

  • 8.

    Leveraged my experiences gained through the MAcc program to intern and start full-time at KPMG. From there, I've learned something new each day and have been provided invaluable opportunities.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    You shouldn't go into public accounting, the CPA Exam requires too much studying and you work too many hours at a Big Four firm.

  • How I responded:

    If I'm being completely honest, some of the above is true. The CPA Exam is difficult and requires dedication. During my time at KPMG, I have absolutely worked some long hours. But in the end, passing the CPA Exam and starting my career at KPMG have been two of the best professional decisions I have made to date. While the CPA Exam provides a strong foundation, KPMG has provided me with countless opportunities to grow my technical knowledge and professional skillset. The hard work is worth it!
