She personally mentors several young professionals and works to influence the direction of the firm based on the shifts in thinking by the professionals entering the work force each year.

She has provided a range of services which include financial statement audits, compliance audits, internal control studies, agreed upon procedures and financial reviews. Her responsibilities as an auditor consist of planning, fieldwork, and report preparation in the areas of financial and compliance audits.
