When I was a junior in high school, I knew I had to start deciding on a college major. For me, it was based on what I loved to do and if there was a demand for it in the workforce. I took a computer programming class and dropped out after the first day. Then I tried Bookkeeping and knew I wanted a career in the finance field. I graduated from College of Westchester with my Associate’s in Occupational Studies in Accounting and realized that the job market was very competitive and required an education beyond a 2-year degree. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration: Accounting from Sacred Heart University. I now have over 20 years’ experience in accounting. I also just recently obtained a Certificate in Not-for-Profit Accounting & Governmental Report from New York University. I am a Senior Accountant in the Finance Department.
