What is your business philosophy?

I take my work seriously, but I do not take myself too seriously. It is important to work hard and respect your coworkers and peers. 

Why did you choose this field / career path?

When I started as an undergrad, I was torn between pursuing an accounting degree versus a marketing degree.  However, the uncertainty faded away when I took my first accounting course and I knew this was the path I wanted to take.  Growing up, I’ve always enjoyed puzzles and numbers; accounting seems to combine these two.

What is one of the best lessons you’ve learned during your career?

To always triple check your work so you can be confident in your final product.  Also, I’ve always kept the phrase “trust but verify” close to my heart.

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney
