My future career

Name of career


Where do you plan to go to school

Texas Lutheran University

How long will it take?

At TLU there is a 4 year bachelor's degree plan and also a 5 year master's plan. I am not sure yet which one i will do. I am playing softball there as well, so it also depends on what happens with that.

Is a higher degree required?

A bachelor's degree will allow you to get accounting jobs, but with a master's degree more opportunities would be available.

Where do you want to live and work?

After graduating from TLU, I plan on working wherever someone needs an accountant. I hope to live in a town about the size of Brenham, but sometimes plans change!

Describe your career

Accountant- a qualified person who is trained in bookkeeping and in preparation, auditing and analysis of accounts. Accountants prepare annual reports and financial statements for planning and decision making, and advice on tax laws and investment opportunities.

What made you decide to pursue this career?

I have always loved math and been really good at it, so I knew I would want to do something math related. TLU has one of the best accounting programs, so after committing to play softball there, I decided that accounting would be a good thing for me to study.
