TVA is relatively well-known in Southeast Tennessee so I was familiar with the company when I applied for the auditor position. Although I had always heard that TVA was a wonderful company to work for, I had never heard of the Inspector General's Office. Throughout the interview process, I was impressed by the managers and employees that I met. After hearing more about the OIG's goal of making TVA better and the diverse nature of audit topics, I knew this would be an interesting job to have.
Currently I'm a senior auditor in the Financial and Operational Audits group. We audit a wide variety of TVA areas.
My two favorite things about this job are my co-workers and the flexibility of work schedules. The people I work with are very intelligent and caring people. I like that they challenge me to become a better auditor.
Throughout my ten years with the OIG, I have worked on a wide variety of reviews and audits. From walking through a nuclear plant to working with TVA's power distributors, I feel like I've gotten to experience many things I wouldn't have elsewhere. The OIG also has a career path set out for entry level auditors that was very helpful in the first few years. I've had the opportunity to lead audits and work with a broad range of TVA employees. I think working here has helped me become a well-rounded auditor.
