One can say being in the accounting industry is in Dominique Lopez’s blood. Her mother is a CPA and her sister is currently studying to take the CPA exam. While attending MacArthur High School, she began working in the administrative department as an intern for ADKF. Over the five years she has been with ADKF, Dominique graduated high school, began her studies at the University of Incarnate Word (UIW,) and graduated this past May with her Bachelor of Business Administration. With this accomplishment, Dominique moved into the Audit Department as a full-time intern. She described this opportunity as one of her proudest moments at ADKF, a sentiment shared by her ADKF family.
Working in the administrative department, she learned a lot about the different aspects of public accounting on both the tax and audit side. Deciding to specialize in audit, she is gaining new experiences daily. She has quickly learned to not be afraid to ask questions. One of her favorite aspects about the job is understanding the organizations she works with and what they do, specifically the non-profits.
When Dominique gets the chance to relax, you can find her doing one of three things: volleyball, watching tv, or shopping! Volleyball has been her favorite sport since childhood. At the age of 12, she went to the USA Volleyball Junior Olympics. Now, she plays sand volleyball when the weather is nice.
Dominque is continuing with her studies at UIW and plans on finishing her Master’s Degree this spring. We are proud of Dominique’s hard work over the past few years and are glad to have her be a part of the ADKF family as she grows in experience.
