Elisa Bowersox grew up in Oakland, Maryland, and attended Frostburg State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s degree in business administration. But it was an internship that set the course of her career.
“In June 2004, I began an internship in public accounting and fell in love with it. I have remained in public accounting ever since and eventually obtained my CPA license,” she says. “In June 2014, I decided to take a leap and move to sunny Florida and escape the snow. I now work for Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co. They have built a tremendous legacy, and I want to help continue it.”
In her spare time, Bowersox enjoys shelling at the beach, taking trips to Pittsburgh with her husband and watching live sporting events.
What are your future aspirations?
Personally, I want to travel the world. I have gotten to live vicariously through all the amazing pictures around the office that Gail Markham has taken in her travels and hope to be able to visit a lot of those same places with my husband.
