One of Edit’s professors at Metro State University of Denver stated in his recommendation: “Edit is an extremely intelligent, articulate, and well-mannered individual. She is also a critical and analytical thinker, and able to express her ideas clearly. In summary, Edit has the potential to go far in the accounting field. In fact, she is one of the best students I have ever had the pleasure to teach.”

Edit earned a B.S. in Business Management and an International Business Certificate in May of 2014 from Metropolitan State University. She then earned a Master’s of Professional Accountancy in December 2015.

Edit believes businesses often need to expand globally to stay competitive. She would like to be the person who helps companies grow their businesses internationally.
