Destination: Northern California

With Okorie Ramsey, Vice President, Finance Compliance Officer & SOX for Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals

Our fall 2015 Virtual Field Trippers joined Okorie at his office in Oakland, California. When he’s not coaching his kids’ soccer team or mentoring less experienced accountants, he’s busy making sure Kaisers’ programs are financially compliant. After taking a virtual tour of his office, Okorie gives us some background on his career and then answers student participants’ questions. 

Topics included:

  • What it’s like to work in financial compliance

  • The importance of internships

  • Advice for high school and college students

  • The salary range you could enjoy as a CPA
