Business Entity Finance – Security

I am a Financial Analyst supporting our Advanced Threat Security business. My journey at Cisco started 3 years ago as an intern in the LIFT program for the summer. I came back to the LIFT Program after graduating from North Carolina State University with my Bachelors in Business Administration, focusing on Finance, IT, and Data Analytics. I have rotated through 4 different positions over the two years in the program: Revenue Accounting, Distribution Finance, Corporate Finance, and Business Entity Finance. Outside of living in Excel, I love to travel , cook, dance and spend quality time with family and friends! My favorite place I’ve traveled would have to be Hawaii, where I got engaged this summer!
