Ashley Huss

According to Ashley Huss, a career in accounting chose her. Accounting wasn’t on her radar when she started college, but her managers early in her career recognized her strong potential in the field and encouraged her to pursue an accounting career. She took their advice and switched gears in college, ultimately graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Accounting. Through her coursework and early professional experiences, she discovered her passion for public accounting.

“I went forward with accounting because it was a career with many possibilities,” Ashley said. “Choosing tax in public accounting led me to working with many clients and being exposed to many challenges.”
