I started my JC Path in 2014, joining the firm right after graduation. Since then I’ve had great opportunities and been offered increasing responsibility to progress my way up to Audit Manager. I’ve always been pushed out of my comfort zone and encouraged to be the best I can, while also knowing that there’s always someone to turn to for help and advice should I need it.
