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 2023 Executive Board
Hector Luque-> President
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 for the spring 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
I am a transfer student from Palomar college, in my senior year here at CSUSM. The Accounting Society has provided me with more opportunities than I had expected when I first joined three 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 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
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.
Zami Harvey -> President-Elect
I’ve been a member of the Accounting Society for one semester, and it’s been a great experience thus far. Joining the Accounting Society has allowed me the opportunity to network with different firms, get advice from previous board members, and acquire an internship. I've met some awesome teachers and classmates, and I'm looking forward to making more connections. As the next president, I’d like to assist other students as they make their way through the program, as well as provide them the same opportunities I’ve received.
Zack Spence -> Vice President-Elect
I am a 3rd year accounting student at CSUSM. I currently manage a tasting room in North County while earning credits towards my bachelor’s degree. I have over a decade in hospitality experience with a focus on customer-oriented transactions. I am currently searching for a public accounting firm where I can utilize my skills in teamwork and leadership while enriching my knowledge of the financial sector.
Jacque Yap -> Treasurer-Elect
I am a transfer student from Palomar College going into my junior year at CSUSM. Outside of school I enjoy cooking, baking, and playing the drums. The Accounting Society has been beneficial as the past board members helped me navigate the various opportunities in accounting. The Accounting Society also helped me gain experience with networking through the meetings and social events.
Amanda LaFrance -> Vice President of Internal Affairs
I’m a transfer student from Palomar College, and I am currently in my 2nd semester here at CSUSM. The Accounting Society has opened my eyes to many aspects of the accounting world that I never knew. Between the Accounting Society meetings, networking events, and my mentorship from our current president, Hector Luque, I was able to land an internship at Solar Turbines! I hope to one day open a small business of my own, selling my crochet products!
Sofia Hedqvist -> Director of Communications & Technology
I am a junior accounting student and a member of the CSUSM volleyball team. Since joining the Accounting Society in Fall 2022, I have been able to learn about opportunities, network with professionals and peers, and secure an internship for the upcoming summer. I hope to help other students learn the benefits of the Accounting Society and achieve their career goals!
Kyle Schoeppner -> Director of Membership
I am a junior Accounting Student expecting to graduate in Fall of 2024. Outside of school and work I enjoy snowboarding, dirt biking and hanging out with friends and family. My goal in joining the Accounting Society is to be a resource for students in regards to internships, schooling and networking. The Accounting Society has been extremely beneficial to me and helped me secure an internship this upcoming summer. I think it is important for students to get involved so they can learn about their future careers.
