OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Society of Certified Public Accountants released the names
of its 2016 Trailblazers in conjunction with the March/April special issue of the society’s
magazine, CPAFOCUS. Jana Walker, CPA, a partner with FSW&B CPAs-PLLC in Stillwater,
Oklahoma, was one of the 20 OSCPA members selected for the honor. She earned her bachelor’s
degree in accounting from Northwestern Oklahoma State University.
The Trailblazer program was established in 2010 to recognize the innovation, professional
dedication and community commitment of the OSCPA’s New CPAs, defined as members who are
under the age of 40 or who have five or fewer years of CPA experience.
“We are honored to have [the Trailblazers] as members of our profession,” said OSCPA President
Robin Byford, CPA, CFP®, senior vice president of wealth management with Merrill Lynch in
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. “Their leadership and talents are valuable to us for our future.”
This year’s honorees will be celebrated at the OSCPA’s 98th Annual Members Meeting on June
10, 2016, in Oklahoma City.
The OSCPA accepts Trailblazer nominations from members and non-members every year during
summer and fall. The OSCPA Public Relations Committee selected this year’s class of
Trailblazers from more than 40 nominations.
