The accounting industry has seen some changes over the last few decades. For instance, the Big Eight is now down to the Big Four. This term refers to four of the largest global accounting firms, namely Deloitte & Touche, Ernst & Young, KPMG, and Price water house Coopers. Advancements in technology are responsible for the integration of newer ways in which small and large accounting firms conduct business in this global environment.

Her experience has taught her a lot, including the importance of persistence. She believes that, to achieve anything, a person must work hard and never hesitate to ask for help.
