  • Hometown: Richmond, TX
  • Undergraduate Institution: The University of Texas at Austin
  • Undergraduate Major: Accounting
  • Career Interests: Internal Audit
  • Why Did You Choose to Attend the Texas McCombs MPA Program? I talked to an older student the summer before applying about her experience in the program after her first year. Knowing that I enjoyed accounting, I wanted to see how far that passion could go by joining the MPA program.
  • Why Did You Choose Accounting for Your Master's Degree? After my first week in my introduction to accounting course I knew it was the major for me. I could not believe there was a major that had a built in check to see if my work was correct (Debits = Credits).
