A 30-second interview with...

What’s something intriguing that most people wouldn’t know about you?

I originally began my college career enrolled as an architecture major because I was intrigued by being able to use the creative part of my brain to find solutions. I am a visual learner who loves creative problem-solving. I ended up changing my major because I found the technical classes to be so boring and I felt a career in accounting offered a wide range of career opportunities with the ability to choose my own path, which led me to Wiss where I get to use the creative part of my brain every day!

What is the best professional advice someone ever gave you and you still live by?

Do not be afraid to ask questions! We become knowledgeable by asking questions about the things we don’t know – it’s how we learn!
