“Moving to Washington D.C. after college was a big step for me. I was a Champaign “townie” and attended the University of Illinois’ great Accountancy program. I didn’t know many people in D.C., but I made friends and built a community that supported me for five years. We weathered snowstorms and hurricanes, traveled overseas for work and, generally, just looked after one another. Now I’m an audit supervisor, which is a great fit because I love rules. I love how they help contribute to a functioning system and how they help establish requirements so everyone knows expectations. Not everyone shares my passion, but that just gives me the opportunity to communicate with others.  I want my co-workers to understand how they contribute to the big picture. Rules shouldn’t be just arbitrary requirements. No one likes rules just for rules’ sake—not even me.”
