Alexa Junikiewicz, ’24, an accounting major from Reading, Pennsylvania, has embraced every opportunity to learn and grow while at Loyola. She is a career ambassador in the Rizzo Career Center, chief financial officer for the Student Government Association, and vice president of the Loyola Consulting Group. A Sellinger Scholar, she serves as the student representative on the University’s Strategic Planning Steering Committee and will serve as student body president her senior year.

“While all of these roles are different, they allow me to serve and empower those around me,” Junikiewicz said. Her career services colleagues specifically praise her professional service and ability to listen to and support her peers.

Junikiewicz interns with RKL consulting firm and will intern with EY in auditing this summer. After graduation, she plans to obtain her CPA to pursue public accounting and ultimately support people in launching their own successful businesses.

“Alexa is a leader among her classmates because she's smart enough to grasp tough material, dedicated enough to make sure she's mastered it, and compassionate enough to share her knowledge freely,” said JP Krahel, Ph.D., CPA, professor of accounting.

“I can't wait to see what good she will do for the world.”
