Allison Janiga, CPA*
I grew up in Mineral Wells, Texas which is a small town about an hour west of Fort Worth and went to college at The University of Texas at Dallas. In college I played on the softball team as a pitcher and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Accounting and Finance and a Master’s in Accounting.
After graduation I started with Grant Thornton in their audit practice in Dallas where I was able to gain experience in a multitude of industries, however I focused on real estate and financial services clients. During my time in public accounting, I learned how to build meaningful and genuine relationships with our clients and navigate tight deadlines, all while maintaining high quality work. I loved the challenges and growth that public accounting offered, but I quickly realized that I wanted to support and collaborate with clients in a way that was not possible as an auditor. This realization and the incredible culture at Embark is what led me to joining the Embark team!
Outside of work you can find me hanging out with my friends and family, my husband and our two dogs. I enjoy working out, baking, watching all things reality TV and serving at my local church!
