New Accounting Intern – Chinecia Ferrer
Hi Everyone. My name is Chinecia (She-knee-sha) Ferrer (Fur-rare). I am currently attending Montclair State University for my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. I will be graduating this year in May. I finished my Associates Degree at Passaic County Community College in 2021. Prior to KRS, I was working as a hairstylist for a franchise you may all know, Supercuts, for about 8 years. KRS is officially my very first accounting job and I look forward to working with everyone. I do have prior experience as a receptionist and office manager in between working at Supercuts and during the pandemic. I do plan to continue my education and to graduate with my Master’s Degree in Accounting. Also, I do hope to sit in for the CPA exam very soon. My favorite aspect of accounting is working with numbers. Ironically, I was never great in math until I got into high school. I understand the concept a lot better and ever since then, I’ve always liked working with numbers.
Fun fact: I was born in the Philippines and moved to the USA in 2003 when I was 6 years old and my first 4 years, I lived in NYC. I still speak Tagalog, which is the main language spoken in the Philippines. I am an avid crocheter and knitter!
New Administrative Intern – Daniel Podstawski
My name is Daniel, and I go to Ramapo College, where I am studying finance and establishing a minor in Accounting. I am in the Ramapo Finance group which is a student-run investment club overseeing and managing a portfolio of about $70,000 currently. I want to pursue a masters while I figure out my career options. I hope to do this through more experience and knowledge in both fields to be able to make the best choice for myself. I am hoping to gain hands on experience and make an impact during my time here. It is very important to me that I work hard here and help in any way I can. I also want to keep making meaningful connections, as everyone in the office is so helping and kind. A fun fact about me is that one of my hidden passions is skiing. I have been doing it for 5 years now and think it is something everyone should try at least once in their lives. I love teaching beginners such as my friends and seeing them fall in love with the sport.
New Administrative Intern – Emily Feola
My name is Emily, and I go to William Paterson University, where I am studying accounting and financial planning. I am in the Student Investment club on campus and also work part time at Dick’s Sporting Goods. As for what is next for me, I first want to finish out my degrees and then start my journey to becoming a CPA. I am hoping to gain experience working in an office and learning more about the administrative side of things as well while working here at KRS. A fun fact about me is I have two older sisters, but I am the tallest out of us three!
