Ms. Snow holds a Bachelor of Music, a Master of Music and a Master of Science. Having been trained as a classical musician, Ms. Snow began her adult life as a skilled pianist before gaining a graduate accounting degree. Though an unusual path from Music to Business, Ms. Snow relies on that artistic background every day of her business life. Indeed, that diversity is what helped distinguish Ms. Snow early on from her peers. Ms. Snow began her professional business career and earned her CPA at KPMG in Boston, where she spent 4 years in the Tax Department before leaving for a variety of executive leadership roles in private industry.
And, to keep her wits and balance in her life, Ms. Snow is an ardent cyclist, hiker, and lover of California wines.
