Exit op for a big 4 tax senior who doesn’t want to work over 40hrs

Been in PA for almost 5 years. Big 4 for 6 months now (local firm 4 years and top 100 firm for 8 months before jumping to big 4) and about to start taking CPA exams. I am certain I don’t want to stay in PA long term. What advice can you give me for what to do next?

Wish list:
-Work life balance. Don’t want to work over 40/45hrs. (Most important) Ability to take pto when I choose
-100k+ (realistic?)
-Remote. Or hybrid (SoCal)

Does anyone have this issue : I realized I’m the kind of person who puts my heart and soul in a job because I’m genuinely passionate / wants to learn and excel at what I’m doing daily.
