Jenifer Mendieta, an Audit Associate in the RRBB Assurance Department, was selected by the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) to serve as a Student Ambassador.
Jenifer said, “I was on the opposite end of the NJCPA Student Ambassador program. So, I am happy to now have the opportunity to help others navigate that same path.”
“Our student ambassadors are highly valued. We are grateful for their support of the accounting profession and for getting the message out there about the many resources we have available at the NJCPA,” said Ralph Albert Thomas, CPA (DC), CGMA, CEO and Executive Director at the NJCPA.
About the NJCPA Student Ambassador Program
