Mr. Not Your Dad’s CPA
Currently an accountant with three years of experience consisting of 2 years in public accounting (National firm but not Big 4) and a little over a year in private industry. I worked for a F500 hospitality company as a senior accountant working with various hotels and tech startups. I was let go due to Covid and I am now working as an accountant for a tech startup, also in a senior accountant role. This pandemic has forced me to look inward and I have realized I want to put my business skills to use in the medical field, working for a non-profit focused on a rare genetic disease I live with. To have an impact in this role I first want to work for a top management consulting firm and learn how to solve an organization’s most pressing problems.
