Nicole Leas (President)

I am a senior Accounting student originally from Palmdale, California. I transferred from Antelope Valley College last year and I have loved accounting ever since I took my first accounting class. I interned at NASA Kennedy Space Center during the summer of last year and I interned at Daniells Phillips Vaughan & Bock during this year's tax season. After graduating, I plan on working in the public accounting industry as an Auditor and I want to obtain my CPA license. My interests outside of accounting include dancing, cooking, and I hope to start traveling as soon as I graduate.  As President of UAA, I want to give CSUB's accounting students as many opportunities as possible to build professional connections and to apply for internships and full-time jobs. I know working with the other UAA officers, Dr. Di Wu, and the various companies in and out of Bakersfield will bring amazing chances for students to jump-start their careers.

Selina Galvan (Vice President)

My name is Selina Galvan and I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration; concentration on Accounting. I also serve as the ‘Director of Budget Management’ for ASI, here at CSUB and ‘Campus Ambassador’ for Wiley CPA. Outside of class, my passion and love are sports cars. I love anything that involves high speed. I am a proud owner of three Mustangs, of which are highly modified and fast! I am excited to serve as your UAA Vice President!

Anthony Ponce (Treasurer)

I am currently a sophomore majoring in Economics with an interest in mathematics; I had initially started my education as a Business Administration major with a concentration in accounting. I have been involved with UAA since the beginning of my freshman year and have attended the majority of the events they have hosted. Additionally, I served as UAA’s Treasurer in the spring of 2016 and have served as its treasurer since the beginning of this academic year. Aside from my affiliation with UAA, I also dedicate my time as a tutor for the Economics department here at CSUB. UAA provided these opportunities for me when I was a Business major and for other students who still are; I am here to work to ensure that these opportunities continue to be available for many students to come in the future, even if I myself may not share exactly similar goals with the majority of the members.

Songping Yan (Membership Coordinator)

My name is Song and my major is accounting. I was a transfer student from Bakersfield College. I will be graduating this coming spring. I am looking forward to serving as your membership coordinator of UAA. I like to watch movies and eat all kinds of Asian cuisine. My goal is to become a CPA and hopefully work in the private accounting industry or educational and consultation area.

Aaron Chen (Secretary)

I have just recently transferred into CSUB in the Fall semester of 2017 and am currently pursuing a degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting. Throughout my time here, the campus has been very helpful in my endeavors and in return, I would like to assist students in their endeavors by contributing my time to the University Accounting Association.

Araceli Rosas (Social Media Officer)

My name is Araceli Rosas and I am proud to be the Social Media Officer of UAA. I am a junior majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting. I will be graduating in the Fall of 2018. I joined UAA in order to raise my chances of networking possibilities and I hope we can help other students do the same. I also hold the Vice President of PR/ Social Media for Beta Gamma Sigma at CSUB.

Matthew Joseph (Photographer)
My name is Matthew Joseph and I transferred from Bakersfield College in the Fall of 2016. I am majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in accounting. I will be graduating in the spring of 2018. After graduation, I want to attain my CPA license. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball, riding my dirt bike, and youtubing how to do different things that I find useful. I joined UAA to become more involved with the different opportunities and events that are available to students and surround myself with people in the industry I plan to enter.
