Corrine Richter

Howdy! My name is Corrine Richter and I am a senior/first year Masters of Accountancy student here at BYU. Being raised in Houston, I learned to love barbeque, friendly people, and hot weather. This came in handy when I was assigned to serve in the Brazil, Curitiba South mission which is known for Brazilian barbeque, warm-hearted people, and plenty of heat and humidity. I loved it there! While studying accounting, I am also studying Dance, which has been a passion of mine since I was two and a half. My husband Reed and I love the mountains in Provo and enjoy doing anything outside including rock climbing, hiking, camping, and even training llamas to backpack through mountain trails. My passion for accounting and for teaching have led me to make the goal of receiving a PhD in Accounting to become a professor. This fall, I will begin BYU’s School of Accountancy PhD Prep track.

Michael Mangum

I grew up in Houston, and graduated from Lamar High School. I served my mission in Cordoba, Argentina straight out of high school.  I am the oldest of six kids, the youngest only being three years old. Some of my favorite things to do are watch sports and play in the intramural leagues here at BYU, especially basketball. I will be a senior this fall in BYU's accounting program. I have an internship lined up with Ernst and Young in the Houston office this January, and am looking forward to finishing up my degree and starting my professional career back home in Houston.
