Nohema Mendoza, CPA*
I was born and raised in East Texas (Lufkin) surrounded by the Piney Woods forest. I ventured to Austin to attend the University of Texas (Hook 'Em!) where I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Accounting and got to live in Madrid, Spain for a semester.
After graduation, I joined the EY Assurance practice in Dallas, Texas, where I was introduced to a fast-paced learning environment, and I worked primarily on a large public client in the manufacturing industry. After about two years, I transferred within the EY Assurance practice to Denver, Colorado, where I gained exposure to other industries in the public sector including technology and healthcare. While at EY, I expanded my technical accounting knowledge, and I learned so much about different client processes, team environments, project management, and client relationships. Now, I am super excited to transfer these skills into the consulting world to help solve problems with Embark!
Outside of work, I love to enjoy the outdoors whether that is hiking during the summer or hitting the slopes to ski during the snowy months. I have learned that I have a passion for trying new things (food, traveling, a new workout class), so I try to expand my horizons whenever I get the opportunity. Last, but not least, I love a good ice-cream outing or a cup of coffee coupled with a good book!
