My Bio

Who I Am

I am currently applying myself to enter the Accounting profession at entry level with education from UMGC, Cornell and YSU with 1 year of Accounting experience. My education includes Accounting, Information Technology, Computer Science and Information Systems and Engineering as my primary disciplines for skills. I am seeking access to employment to obtain experience for CPA licensure as a CPA Candidate.

I am also in the process of pursuing a position in project management compatible with CPA candidacy. I am a current Project Management Institute member interested in advancing my 4 years of project management experience into project management certifications in preparation for PMI CAPM certification.

I am also currently engineering a company in Aerospace and Defense named Horizons as a side gig, which will include skills from my CPA Candidacy with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Project Management Institute as part of the incubation and bootstrapping phases to lift my project and licensing agenda off the ground.

I am accomplished with significant education and continuously building experience with soft skills in leadership, communications and general studies to apply with roles in Computer Science, Business Administration, Accounting, IT and Engineering.
