Student Spotlight

Ashley Garber

Background: I grew up in Plano, Texas. Currently, I am pursuing my B.S. in Accounting with a minor in Spanish, and I plan to graduate in December 2021. During my time at UTD, I helped found a chapter of the College Diabetes Network, and I am currently serving as Treasurer. After finishing my undergraduate coursework, I will continue to attend UT Dallas and obtain my M.S. in Accounting with the IAEP and cybersecurity systems certificates. Additionally, I plan on pursuing the CIA, CPA, and CFE certifications. Outside of school, I enjoy spending my free time volunteering with Seven Loaves Food Pantry, the Salvation Army, and Operation Kindness.

Why Internal Audit?: I first became interested in internal audit because my goal is to specialize in forensics and fraud investigation. I believe a background in internal audit will provide me with the necessary foundation to be successful as a professional in this field. I was very excited to have the opportunity to join the UT Dallas IIA/ISACA/ACFE Student Chapter and UTD’s world-class internal audit program, both of which have allowed me to make valuable connections and learn more about the profession. As I have learned more about internal audit, I have discovered that my favorite parts about the field are the opportunities to solve new problems, to continuously be learning, and to help improve organizations.
