Erin Barlow, CPA*


A Texas native, I grew up in the Dallas suburb of Coppell. Then I ventured a few hours south and obtained my BBA and MPA from the University of Texas at Austin.

After graduating, I moved back to Dallas and began my career in the audit oil and gas practice at KPMG. I had the opportunity to work on an exciting public E&P company along with several private E&P jobs. Audit at KPMG taught me invaluable life skills relating to teamwork, teaching, and time management, while I also gained accounting experience relating to SOX, financial reporting, and technical accounting topics. My favorite parts of audit were solving puzzles and building relationships, and now at Embark, I get to do exactly that - I use my skills to build relationships and help clients solve problems!

Outside of work, you can catch me attending as many home and away UT football games as I can, working my way through my never-ending list of Dallas restaurants to try, reading blogs about how to earn hotel and airline points so I can travel more for less, and spending time with my family and friends. Hook ‘em!
