Obtaining a CPA license was a natural progression for me since my major was Accounting and at the time I sat for the exam I was working in a Public Accounting Firm. My real passion is IT audit (since my original major in college was MIS (Management Information Systems) and I added Accounting). After college I started working at PwC in IT audit and decided to pass the CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) exam first. Once I gained confidence by passing the CISA exam and realized the value of having a CPA license in the business world (increased knowledge, respect and pay), I worked on passing the CPA exam. What a great decision it has been!
