I'm a senior at Cal State Fullerton studying business administration with a finance concentration. My scholar interests are in investing, politics, and economics. I currently work as an assistant bookkeeper. My duties range from payroll processing and invoicing to working catering events. I'm an organized person who is willing to learn new things. I was a member of the Student Managed Investment Fund to apply my investment interest. This was an important step for me to develop professionally. As a current member of Titan Capital Management, this program allows us to manage a portfolio for the school with a great team of individuals. When I finish school, I plan to start the CFA program and seek a career in investments to apply what I learned.

Plums Cafe & Catering - Assistant Bookkeeper - 2015 to Present

As an assistant bookkeeper, my task is to keep reports updated and add invoices into QuickBooks. I also assist with payroll by updating a tips report every week. As a popular restaurant in the Orange County area, we receive many vendor invoices. I have a strong attention to detail because each vendor item must be separated into different categories in QuickBooks. Working for a small business, I'm always prepared to take on multiple roles.
