Clivia Lainez is a 2004 School of Business finance alumna and a 2009 graduate of the MBA program. Mason afforded Lainez the opportunity to obtain a quality global education while she was a working student, both through undergrad and with the part-time MBA program. The education, guidance, and networking opportunities that she received at Mason set the path and opened doors for a successful and rewarding career in the D.C. area. After graduating in 2004, she spent 14 years in Government Contract Finance for various local defense contractors before joining BDO’s Government Contracts Consulting Practice. At BDO, Lainez is passionate about helping her clients through growth and transition. At this point in her career, she wants to give back to George Mason by supporting alumni outreach and spreading the word about Mason’s world class programs. Outside of work she enjoys staying active, nature hikes with her husband and three children, and escapes with her friends.
