What is one of your favorite memories from your time at Andersen Tax?
My favorite memories at Andersen Tax stem from the time I have spent both inside and outside of work with the friends I have made at the firm.

Describe your career path and how you chose Andersen Tax.
My career path started with knowing that I wanted to go to law school. I went into it thinking that I would be interested in real estate law, and ultimately was drawn to estate planning from my Wills and Trusts professor from college. He stressed the necessity of learning tax in order to become competitive in the estate planning market. Thus, this led me to pursue a tax certificate in law school. Once I took my first tax class, it clicked, and I continued to take more tax courses throughout law school. One of my mentors in law school was hired as a summer intern, then Associate at Andersen Tax, and she suggested that I look into the internship program. I ended up interning at Andersen Tax in the winter of 2014, and afterwards received a full-time offer.
