2019-2020 LEADERSHIP TEAM
Julia Bell is a senior, double majoring in both Accounting and Finance. Her hometown, Indiana, PA, is about an hour away from Pittsburgh, so she is a huge fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. In her spare time, Julia enjoys cooking, rock-climbing, skateboarding, and singing. She is part of Liberty University's Honor's Program, and is also a member of the Delta Mu Delta Honor Society. She says, "I love accounting because it challenges me. It seems as if there is always something new to learn." After graduation, Julia will begin work in Washington, D.C. as a Staff Auditor at Crowe L.L.P., a public accounting firm. She also plans to sit for the CPA exam.
Nickolas "Nick" Martin is a senior Accounting major, originally from Dayton, Ohio. He enjoys running, playing or watching soccer, watching movies or musicals, and playing board games with friends. He serves as a Resident Assistant on campus at Liberty University, and has worked with the ministry Young Life for the past two years. In addition, Nick was honored to win his high school's Peace Prize award. Nick says that Accounting interests him because "it is a profession built on gatekeeping information and making sure things are fairly disclosed - essentially keeping companies accountable to the outside world and giving investors adequate information to make decisions." After graduation, Nick plans to pursue a Master of Business Administration degree before pursuing the CPA designation and a full-time position in public accounting.
