She states “Accounting Professor and academic advisor Kimberly Mungaray helped me understand that my want to work with nonprofits, travel, and give back would be achieved if I switched to International Business. She saw how unhappy accounting made me”  “She opened my eyes to all the different possibilities as well as helped me pave the way to the start of my career.”
