A Washington, PA native, Brianne graduated from Washington and Jefferson College (W&J), in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. After graduating from W&J, Brianne began her career in public accounting in the Greater Pittsburgh area at a Big Four public accounting firm, Ernst and Young (EY). For 2 years, Brianne served as an auditor overseeing various annual and quarterly audits of private and public financial institutions. In addition to performing annual and quarterly audits, Ms. Roark traveled for yearly site visits to several locations from Houston, TX to Los Angeles, CA.
Upon leaving public accounting, Brianne connected with Pinnacle with the expectation to start the process of seeking an opportunity within Corporate Accounting. However, a different path was paved when she made connections with the Pinnacle Team. Brianne expressed her interests in recruiting and passion for helping others. At this time, Brianne accepted a Staff Associate position at Pinnacle where she utilizes her past experience and direct experiences in public accounting to help other fellow accounting and finance professionals manage their career and help them pursue career advancement opportunities.
In her free time, Brianne enjoys selling LuLaRoe (an online clothing company) with her mother, spending quality time with family, and relaxing with her dog “Roscoe” (a precious Cavalier King Charles Spaniel).
