Nancy Vazquez

My name is Nancy Vazquez and I am a senior at Texas Woman’s University. I went back to school in the summer of 2016 to pursue a career in accounting. I have earned two associates degrees in the education and IT fields, and this winter I will be graduating with a BBA in Accounting. In addition to being a full-time student, I work as an accounts payable manager for a flooring company and as an operations clerk for a bank. In my time at TWU, I have served as the treasurer of the Accounting and Finance Society. I was also honored to receive the TSCPA Accounting Excellence Award for 2018. One of the most rewarding experiences at TWU is being able to work in the accounting lab and tutor other students.

I joined the Alpha Sigma Lambda Society at the beginning of last semester and it has been life changing. I am grateful for the amazing people I have met and the opportunities available to succeed and help each other on the way.
