Q: Tell us about your decision to join PwC.

A: It was a tough decision for me because I was deciding between joining PwC or going into teaching. While in college, I started thinking about possibly going into teaching later in life since I wanted to teach at the collegiate level. I also really enjoyed math and felt that accounting was a good hybrid of math and business.

Q: How did you decided between PwC and the other Big Four?

A: I got offers from all of the Big Four firms and felt that PwC really cared about me as a person. They were focused on not only getting me the job offer, but also making sure I was happy with the position I would be taking. Human resources called and gave me some options as to which career paths would be the best fit for my skillset and I felt that they really paid attention to my needs.

Q: How did you transition from Forensics into the Learning and Development group?

A: I was looking for something different and knew that I wasn’t going to leave PwC so I looked into the Learning and Education group. I was interested in being a project manager where I would do everything from planning a course to designing a course. Everyone was very supportive and happy that I was able to find an opportunity for me within the firm.

Q: What activities do you enjoy outside of work?

A: I try to stay active with my friends. During the summer, we go to the beach and I just recently participated in a 75-mile bike ride.
