My career with RSM US LLP (RSM) started in the Fort Lauderdale office in South Florida as a graduate of Florida State University. (Go Noles!) When I left the firm, I did so to pursue a unique opportunity. A friend was doing something completely different in financial advisory (specifically corporate restructuring—under investment banking), and he invited me to join him. Corporate restructuring was something completely new and interesting to me and a unique opportunity for growth, so I felt I needed to give it a shot. Best case, I liked it—great; in the worst case, I could always come back to public accounting (and hopefully RSM)!
