When did you know you wanted to become an accountant?

I was introduced to accounting my senior year in high school and I decided to become an accountant my first year of college. They asked me to declare a major and as I looked down the list (in alphabetical order) accountant was at the top so I chose it.

When did you know you wanted to become a CPA?

I first realized what a CPA was and knew that I wanted to become one after being introduced to NABA as a student.

Do you have any family members who are also CPAs?


Where did you sit for the CPA exam?

In your own words, what are the advantages of being a Black CPA?

At this point I haven't seen any.

What advice do you have for anyone considering a career in accounting?

It's rewarding. It has so many tentacles. Every business needs them. Recession proof.
