What was your proudest moment with your
accounting society this past year?
My proudest moment with my accounting society was last
semester when I was able to deliver several bags of donat-
ed coats to CSCPA for the winter coat drive.
Did you have any favorite speakers this year?
My favorite speakers this year were the four small local
firms that came to Quinnip
iac for a panel discussion. The
firms present were Bailey Murphy + Scarano, LLC, Del
Conte, Hyde, Annello & Schuch P.C., Weinstein &
Anastasio, P.C., and Whittlesey & Hadley, P.C. I found this
discussion to be very interesting because they spoke about
what it is like to work at a smaller firm versus a larger firm,
as well as what a work day consists of.
What are your plans for next year?
After graduation, I plan to intern in the Hartford Ernst &
Young office in assurance services. After my internship, I
plan to complete my M.S. in accounting at the University of
Hartford.

What was your proudest moment with your
accounting society this past year?
My proudest moment this year with the accounting society
was overfilling a room with students in the student center
and having the maintenance manager see this and force
us into a larger room because of the fire hazard. I was
proud because this showed our advisor, officers, and me
that the accounting society has significantly grown in the
past few months.
Did you have any favorite speakers this year?
My favorite speaker so far was Marc Lorenti from the
Department of Homeland Security. He told the students
about his past career in accounting and how he had made
it through the ranks and then launched into forensic
accounting with the Department of Homeland Security. He
discussed money laundering and gave us some of his
background working with it.
How has the CSCPA helped you this year?
This year, the CSCPA Educational Trust Fund gave SCSU
checks at the awards dinner in October to contribute to the
budget for the accounting society and department. They
also provided an excellent speaker, Alicia McCain, who
speaks every year about the CSCPA and becoming a
Student Pledge.
What are your plans for next year?
My plans for the next year are to graduate with 150 credits
in May and study for the CPA Exam over the summer.
I plan to take at least two or three exam parts over the
summer. I will launch my accounting career with
McGladrey and Pullen in November.
