Why did you choose Daniels?

After moving around a lot, I fell in love with Colorado and wanted to stay there. I checked out many programs in the area but found that Daniels was the best fit for me. The knowledgeable staff made me feel confident that I would be supported in my studies and guided me to take the courses that best suited my goals. The personability and small cohort size in my program were not easily found elsewhere and were particularly important to me in finding the right fit.

Previous Education

BS in business administration with a dual emphasis in accounting and finance from the University of Colorado Boulder

Pre-Grad School Experience

Prior to starting my graduate degree, I did an internship in tax at Deloitte. I also worked at First Bank as a commercial banking intern. Currently, I work in the accounting department at the Denver Country Club to continue to gain relevant experience for my degree.

Post Grad School Goal

After a wonderful internship this past summer, I have accepted a full-time offer in tax at Deloitte in Denver. I also plan to obtain my CPA.


I love to spend time outside hiking, swimming and traveling with my friends and family. I also dedicate much of my time to my beloved golden retriever, Beau. In addition, I like to read, bake and crochet.
