Hello! My name is Kelly McCarthy and I am a Management Information Systems (MIS) and Accounting dual major at the Fox School of Business. I am involved in a variety of student professional organizations. The SPOs I am involved in are Beta Alpha Psi (BAP), where I was acknowledged as a distinguished member, Fox Accounting Association (FAA), and Association for Information Systems (AIS).
Growing up, I attended school in the Souderton Area School District. During high school, I was very involved within the student council. I have contributed in planning the homecoming dance, Souder-THON, an all-night event where the proceeds went to charity, a “Prom Fashion Show”, and much more! I was able to create lasting relationships with fellow students and teachers that I still have to this day. I am grateful for my teachers in high school who have helped shape me into the person I am today.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have an older sister, brother-in-law, and younger brother. I value my time spent with them.
When I first started working in 2015, I got a job as a customer service associate at Dunkin Donuts. In 2018, I decided to expand my knowledge and switch from the food service industry to the retail industry where I worked as a head cashier. In this position, it was my primary responsibility to make sure that the check-out process for all customers went smoothly. During summer 2022, I interned with Deloitte in their Philadelphia office within their Audit and Assurance practice.
My expected graduation date is December 2022, with 150 credits. I plan to obtain my CPA licensure immediately following graduation. I hope to be able to utilize my knowledge I learned in both the MIS and Accounting curriculum in my future role. I am interested in both the financial and technology aspects of a business. I hope to eventually transition to an IT-related role later in my career.
