Big4 NY Interview – Potential Awkward Situation

I’m a 3rd year senior at a regional NY firm, I have an interview with a Big 4 firm next week. One of the partners I’m interviewing with is the AC chair on one of my clients. I didn’t present to the AC, I’m not sure if she knows my name, but she definitely knows my firm.

I think the AC was pleased with our audit, we did hit them with multiple sig defs but we had some good recommendations based on those sig defs that the partner said the AC was pleased with.
How do I go about this in the interview? Do I mention I lead that engagement? There seem to be some bad ways this could go, or good if she was truly pleased with our audit.
