Director of Community Outreach, May 2017-May 2018

Elected President in May 2018

Who are you and where are you headed?

“I’m a non-traditional, first generation graduate student with a knack for helping others realize their full potential. I currently intern at a national public accounting firm, CliftonLarsonAllen, where I focus primarily in tax accounting. I have accepted a full time offer with the firm pending my CPA eligibility. My dream is to work several years in public accounting and eventually start my own firm. It is my goal to help small business owners achieve their dreams in my hometown of San Antonio.”

 

What’s one fun fact about you?

“I’ve always wanted to be in a band. I play (a little) guitar and sing along but I can’t do both at the same time… at least not well.”

What do you do in your spare time?

“I enjoy cooking, playing pool, playing basketball, and watching sports. I like to work on my car and spend time with my family. I’m also a huge nerd who enjoys Harry Potter, Pokemon GO, and Lord of the Rings.”

What did you really want to be as a kid?

“An astronaut. I used to tell my grandma I’d be the first man on Mars. Too bad I’m terrified of heights.”

What’s your favorite memory with ALPFA?

“It would have to be symposium in Spring 2018 that we hosted here in San Antonio. It was so amazing to see everyone in our chapter come together to host such a big event. It really showcased the talent and camaraderie we share.”
