As I reflect on my time at BDO and how wonderful it is to be a Partner, I know I have found my professional home. I see a perfect alignment in BDO values and mine; and for me, it starts with HEART. This allows me to wake up every day knowing that the work that I perform can have a significant impact on a business or person. A successful day for me is one where even just one person could sleep better that night as a result of my work or a conversation with me.
