Dawna Boone, CPA*
I grew up in Natick, Massachusetts (outside Boston) before moving to Fort Worth, Texas, and graduating from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia with my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration with a focus on accounting.
After graduation, I started my career at KPMG in Dallas, focusing on real estate, financial services, and later telecommunications clients. I have also gained valuable experience in various roles at EY, Riveron Consulting, and Fannie Mae. My most recent role was internal audit at a financial services firm helping implement a data-driven, continuous audit approach.
After experiencing both industry and client service, I knew I wanted to get back into a client-serving role to help teams improve functionality and create scalable solutions to problems accounting teams face. Here at Embark, I enjoy leveraging my broad accounting, finance, and audit experience to help our clients implement solutions that meet their needs.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching old movies, going to fitness classes, and traveling.
