Core Firm Values
Perspectives from the Team
What led you to seek the AICPA certification in Intermediate Employee Benefit Plans Audit?
I had initially talked about it to one of the audit partners a year ago because of the work that I do for ERISA. The firm sponsored the test, and they worked with me to free up my schedule to ensure I had enough time to study and take the test. AICPA recommends 13 hours of CPE, and the exam itself is 100 questions timed at three and a half hours. Especially with my current workload, and the schedule I have with my kids at home, I was thankful that the firm helped adjust things to accommodate for this advancement opportunity.

What does success look like for you?
Success is when someone puts their trust in you and provides you more challenging work because they believe you’re able to do it. It shows that you’re an expert at something. I know that I’m not great at everything, but I like to think that there are certain jobs that I’ve been trusted to work on. When people can see that you have a level of expertise, I find that to be a great trait. Once you reach that point of demonstrating your technical abilities or becoming a subject expert, the other things fall into place, like promotions.
