"As a member and Chapter President of Beta Alpha Psi, I have had the privilege of cultivating meaningful relationships with so many unique, driven professionals that have been essential to both my academic success and professional development. The opportunities and obstacles I have faced while in BAP have allowed me to adapt my previous military experience to the public accounting profession. Receiving the Medal of Inspiration was such a meaningful event in my life because there are so many people who are silently going through challenges and are in need of support and encouragement. I'm humbled to know that my story may have inspired others to give back to their communities. It's a great source of pride knowing that Beta Alpha Psi not only shared the same values as I do, but also stands by them."
