About the Ambassador Program

Why I chose Surgent

One of my professors reached out to me about what he thought would be a wonderful opportunity— applying to be a Surgent CPA Review Student Ambassador. While at BAP’s annual meeting in Washington DC, I approached Surgent’s information booth and was enthralled with the energy of the Surgent representatives, as well as their competency in answering my questions. I chose Surgent because of the successful pass rates, user friendly system, and incredible amount of study resources provided. I was impressed with the structure of the Ambassador Program, too, and honored by their willingness to let me become a part of the team. A few weeks later, I began my journey as a Student Ambassador!


My plans after graduation 

I will enter into a summer internship at an accounting firm and, ultimately, attend graduate school.


When I am not busy working or studying …

I enjoy hanging out with my friends, doing yoga, traveling with my mom for her work, and playing with our two dogs.


One fun fact bbout me

I’m left handed!
