Hometown: Dell Rapids, SD
Graduation: 2013
Degree/Major:  Bachelor of Business Administration - Accounting (B.B.A.), Masters of Professional Accountancy (M.P.A.)

Professional Profile:

I am working as a Summer assurance intern with the strong possibility of starting full-time in January 2014.  I am also in the process of passing my Certified Public Accounting (CPA) license.     

How Did Beacom Prepare Me For Success?

Beacom not only helped academically but allowed me to experience events outside the classroom such as high profile speakers, trips to Kansas City and St. Louis for Beta Alpha Psi meetings, and the ability to tour and visit with individuals within my own profession.  The ability to network and gain a true insight for what I need to accomplish to become successful have prepared me for my future and put me ahead of the curve.   

Internship Experiences:

I was fortunate enough to have a total of four internships in both public and private accounting.  Throughout these internships I learned more about my profession, myself, and much more. I am a firm believer that experience is the best teacher and throughout my years at USD I have tried to take advantage of that.      

Advice to Prospective Students Considering Beacom?

First, put yourself out there, and by this I mean putting yourself in situations you would normally be too nervous or too scared to do. This will allow you to learn more about yourself and to grow as an individual.  My second piece of advice is to try to stay positive no matter how bad you have it. You will experience some of the best times of your life in college and also the most stressful.
