Wendy Borja-Diaz is a life-long learner with a knack for numbers.
Originally from Sangolqui, Ecuador, her husband decided to move to the United States to pursue his PhD. Borja-Diaz knew this would be the perfect opportunity for her to pursue her own professional and academic goals.
“I started working with payroll, bookkeeping, and financial reporting and taxation, which I really enjoyed. That’s how I ended up choosing finance as a career path. But I knew this was just the beginning,” Borja-Diaz said.
After completing her master’s in accounting, Borja-Diaz decided she was ready for a new challenge — the master of finance (MFIN) program at Iowa State University. Borja-Diaz worked for a few local businesses and is now an accountant for the Budget and Finance Office within the Iowa State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
I’m always eager to learn new things and embark on new experiences. The MFIN program offers a whole new set of skills that have made me more marketable and will benefit my future career and my personal finances.”
