Klostermeier Provides Insight to High School Students About One of Today’s Best Career Opportunities

  spacer
 

 

During the last several years, as career opportunities for Certified Public Accountants have expanded dramatically, accounting has become one of the fastest growing majors in American colleges and universities. That’s what teacher Robert Garcia’s accounting students at Parsippany High School discovered Nov. 10 when Janice Klostermeier, CPA, FACHE, MHA, executive vice president, chief financial officer and chief administrative officer for Emergency Medical Associates, visited to discuss the exciting, well-paying career opportunities that are available to students who study accounting.

“I’ve always had a love for numbers and knew early on that I wanted to work in finance. Pay it Forward is a great opportunity to inform students that also have a love for numbers of their career options,” said Klostermeier.

Klostermeier holds a bachelor’s degree of business administration in accounting from the University of Texas at Arlington and has been a certified public accountant since 1989. She is licensed as a CPA in New Jersey, New York and Texas. She recently received the CFO of the Year Award for Best Growth Manager from NJ Biz magazine.

Her employer, Emergency Medical Associates, provides emergency department management services to about 25 percent of the hospitals in New Jersey.

The presentation was part of the statewide Pay It Forward campaign initiated by the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA) to alert students to the rewarding career opportunities available to those who pursue an accounting degree. This fall, more than 160 CPAs are headed back to the classroom to discuss careers in accounting with nearly 10,000 high school students. As working professionals, these NJSCPA members are able to give students a realistic picture of what it takes to succeed in accounting and the rewards accounting professionals can expect.

The Pay It Forward presentations include videos that allow students to learn about the rewarding career of a CPA, fun facts and an overview of the range of career choices available after graduation.

In addition to her financial background, Klostermeier also holds a master’s degree in health services administration and is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives. She joined Emergency Medical Associates in 2011.
