Sara Ahmed is a sleuth on the trail of fraudsters in her role as a Data Scientist working at Hearst Corp. That's a critical role for the company's auditors. As one of the rising stars within MFM's Young Professional (YP) Network, Ahmed caught the eye of Carrie Heffernan, an Assistant Controller at Bonneville International. Heffernan is a YP Co-Chair and Co-Host of the Up & Comer video series.

That attitude has helped Ahmed grab her first rungs of the corporate ladder.
