Honored to follow the path of a trailblazing female leader

I look forward to working right alongside our Tax Service leaders and teams to advance these new, evolving experiences and magnify their abilities as highly engaged, innovative and world-class tax professionals. I’m particularly honored to follow the path of Kate Barton, a trailblazing female leader who unwaveringly believes in bringing forward a diverse and talented next generation of leaders.”
