Profile in Resilience: Brenda McAuliffe, Assurance Partner, Ernst & Young LLP
Shellee Fisher Davis Photographer
When Brenda McAuliffe thinks about resilience, her thoughts turn to flexibility. She believes that to be resilient, a person must also be flexible. This philosophy has served her well in all aspects of her life and career.
The theme of our 2012 community directories is Resilience: Stories of Innovation & Inspiration. In our Columbus area directory, Brenda shares her life story and advice about resilience:
"With resilience I have been able to persevere and thrive for 24 years in what was very much a male-dominated profession when I started in accounting. I'm proud that I've been able to maintain balance in a dynamic environment at both work and home. After having my first child four years into my career with Ernst & Young, I quickly adopted a strategy of taking one day at a time, focusing on doing my best during the day at hand and resuming where I left off the next day. This strategy has served me well at work, and with my hectic schedule with three active kids!"
