  • Make Your Profession Your Passion — Develop Your Brand

    November 17, 2014
    I’m forever a New York sports fan. Sports have always been an escape for me, a kind of safe haven. I’ve always viewed sports as a hobby—one that wouldn’t cross into my professional life. However, I have a colleague who, to quote the Seinfeld show, was able to make “worlds collide.”
I am so thankful for the New Jersey Society of CPAs and their efforts in helping me become a CPA. A few years ago I was hospitalized with a serious illness, and, while I was in recovery, the time elapsed on one of the CPA exam sections I had previously passed. I was worried about having to start from scratch after everything I had been through, so I contacted the Society to see what options, if any, were available. I was quickly informed that I could petition the State Board of Accountancy to get my time extended on the expired section, and, after much help from the amazing people at the Society, my request was granted.

I am very thankful that I was a member of the Society at the time. Seeing the effort spent to help me get my credit back was truly inspiring. Further, I was able to utilize the study tools and tips available on the Society’s website as a guide through the remaining exam sections, and today I can happily say that I am a CPA.
