Graduating with a BBA in Accounting (c/o 2013) and Masters of Professional Accountancy (c/o 2014), Sydney Nelson enjoyed every bit of her experience at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. From serving on various executive boards (National Association of Black Accountants, Inc., Black Student Union, and Beta Alphas Psi), to taking on other campus leadership roles (Campus Assistant, Resident Assistant, and Warhawk Ambassador), to being engaged with the Center for Global Experiences (exchange program in Mexico, three travel study courses, inaugural Global Ambassador cohort), to joining the one and only Lambda Alpha chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and capping it all off with serving as the Spring 2013 Undergraduate Student Commencement speaker, her time at UWW was unforgettable.

Currently, Sydney works as a Senior Internal Auditor within the Advocate Aurora Health’s Internal Audit Department, focusing on Strategy & Internal Controls for the Top 10 Non-Profit Health System. In the community, she serves as a Board member for SecureFutures, a non-profit focused on providing financial education, and Ascension Fellowship Church, at the regional and national levels for the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc., on the local board for the Milwaukee Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., as a Mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters and All-In Milwaukee, and is a newly inducted member into the Cream City (WI) chapter of The Links, Incorporated. In her free time, she can be found watching all shows on HGTV, rooting for the Milwaukee Bucks (next season’s NBA Champions),or making a new creation in her kitchen.
