Cara Mulligan Senior Accountant

Cara joins Propeller with five years of accounting and auditing experience. After graduating from Washington and Lee University with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting, Cara moved down to Austin, Texas. While in Austin, she studied for her Masters in Professional Accounting at the University of Texas. Cara played varsity lacrosse as a goalie at W&L and served as a team captain both her junior and senior seasons.

She began her career in Austin working for Deloitte within the audit group. While with Deloitte, she obtained her CPA certification and was primarily engaged with CPG and insurance clients. In addition, she worked with an emerging growth company within the retail B2C industry which triggered an interest in start-ups. This experience sparked a desire to learn more about the start-up world and what drives brand recognition and success as a new venture.

After three long busy seasons and too many 100-degree Texas days, she moved back to her northeast roots and began working as a trade accountant with a multinational commodity trading company. Once she learned about Propeller and the unique combination of client service, start-up companies, and accounting processes, she knew it would be the ideal spot place to learn and grow in her career.

Outside of accounting, Cara enjoys cooking new recipes, staying active, attending live music events, and camping.
