Paula Legaspi became an accounting intern/administrative assistant for Douglass + Liebig, Inc. in February 2019. She is currently a senior student at CSU Sacramento and is working on her BS in Accountancy. Paula moved from her hometown San Jose, CA after graduating from Evergreen Valley College with an AS in Business Administration and is driven to pursue her dream to become a CPA.
In her senior year of high school, she took an accounting class that she genuinely enjoyed and ended up receiving a Business Department Award for her high academic achievement. Paula's interest in the subject made her realize her passion for numbers and the world of business. With graduation just around the corner, she decided to implement what she has been learning in school and apply for internships to gain accounting work experience. Luckily, she was able to find our company's internship opportunity online through her school's business job board and is now part of our dynamic team.
Paula is motivated to learn the inner workings of an accounting firm and gain experience in tax and bookkeeping. She assists our team with administrative work and receives hands-on training from the accountants as she progresses.
