What would you be doing if you weren’t an accountant?

If I was not an accountant I most likely would be a real estate developer.  I appreciate the way they envision the layout of the property and structures and dream them into existence.

What was your first job growing up?

Waste disposal manager.  I grew up on the dairy farm, so first jobs were related to feeding and cleaning up after the animals.

What’s your favorite part about being an accountant?

The ability to work with the owners of all kinds of businesses.  I am excited to be able to assist them with solutions to issues and help them improve their businesses.
