Meet the Executive Board!
The Executive Board serves the students in the Accounting Society by providing opportunities to network with accounting professionals and aid in securing internships. Serving in leadership as a member of the Executive Board is an experience in its own right. We host networking and job fair events like Career Connections that allow the students to gain one-on-one interactions with many different accounting firms and their professionals.
As a member on the Executive Board, it's our responsibility to be a resource and guide for students in the Accounting Society. Accounting is a difficult major to navigate on your own, so we strive to make the transition from college to the real world as smooth as possible. The Accounting Society's main job is to serve as a bridge between students and accounting professionals. It's our job as the Executive Board to keep the Accounting Society running smoothly and provide convenient resources for students to access.
Spring 2022 Executive Board
Robert Taylor -> President
I am a Senior at CSUSM, expecting to graduate in Spring 2023. Outside of Accounting, I enjoy snowboarding, surfing, and golfing. The Accounting Society played an essential role in my decision to study accounting. I have enjoyed networking at our meetings & events throughout the various semesters. I have been motivated and inspired by professionals I’ve met through the Accounting Society and our Members/Executive board.
Akarsh Wadhawan -> Vice President
I’m a senior in my final year at CSUSM. I enjoy video games, any show or movie with a good story, and running. I view the Accounting Society as an important asset to the students, one that could provide them with plenty of opportunities to grow and learn more about the field so that they can decide what they want to pursue within accounting after graduation. As the VP my goal is to do just that, provide our members and the Accounting students of CSUSM with as many opportunities as it has done for me in the past. I excited for the society and the upcoming semester!
Loi Ngu -> Treasurer
In my final year at CSUSM, I will graduate with a degree in Accounting and a minor in Management Information Systems. I enjoy surfing, hiking, and playing video games in my free time. I’ve decided to become a Treasurer because of my passion for mentoring and guiding the next generation of accounting students. This profession is a constant journey filled with networking opportunities and continuous learning. I’m excited for this upcoming year for both myself and those around me!
Hector Luque -> President-Elect
I am currently a 4th year Senior at CSUSM. I enjoy Snowboarding, Softball, Football, and the beach life in general. Like all of us, I have that accounting mentality. I recently realized that I love the analytical side of accounting through an internship opportunity this past summer. I would never have found this opportunity if it wasn’t for the great people in the Accounting Society! That’s why I am President-Elect for the fall semester. I believe that even a small team of people, who are dedicated, work together, and harness their individual talents, can be unstoppable! Keep stretching. Keep growing. Keep pushing...and keep dreaming!
Jen McCulley -> Vice President-Elect
I am a transfer student from Palomar college, going into my senior year here at CSUSM. The Accounting Society has provided me with more opportunities than I had expected when I first joined two semesters ago. Through networking and attending the Career Connections events, I was able to secure an internship at Withum that ultimately led to a full-time position offer for when I graduate in May of 2023. As the future Vice President, I look forward to finishing out my senior year by helping as many other students as possible who are pursuing an accounting degree and trying to find their own way within the industry.
Rodrigo Fuentes -> Treasurer-Elect
I am a senior accounting student at CSUSM, graduating in the Spring of 2023. Since joining the Accounting Society I have gained professional experience interning at Aldrich Advisors and Moss Adams. In addition, I am a student veteran. Currently, I reside in Oceanside with my family.
Sergio Ramirez -> Vice President of Internal Affairs
I am a senior accounting student at CSUSM, graduating in Spring 2023. In my free time, I enjoy playing video games, watching anime, and playing sports. The Accounting Society helped me explore all the options in the accounting world and helped me network in incredible ways through our weekly meetings and scheduled events. The Accounting Society is an amazing way for students who wish to learn about accounting and pursue it as a career.
Kaly Valdez -> Director of Communications & Technology
I’m an incoming senior at CSUSM. In my downtime, I enjoy watching Hulu (specifically Teen Wolf), driving down the coast highway from Oceanside to Del Mar, and going to classic car meets. Joining the Accounting Society has helped me discover a variety of career paths within accounting. My favorite part of the society are the networking events we host like our Career Connection fairs. Through this club, I’ve been able to meet and work with firms I can see a future with.
Andrea Gomes -> Director of Membership
I’m a fifth-year senior accounting student, graduating in Fall 2022. The accounting society has helped me connect with other students and learn about firms that I’m interested in networking with. I’m excited to get to know the students who join the society as I wrap up my final semester.
