Years with the company:
What is it about accounting that drew your interest?
Growing up I always enjoyed math and managing my finances, so accounting seemed like a logical choice when deciding on a major in college. I really had no idea how different my career would be from what I learned in the class room.
Describe your most memorable MHC&S moment:
Seeing the aftermath of a car driving across the frozen pond behind our building during busy season several years ago.
What words of wisdom would you offer aspiring accountants?
Bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to looking for a place to make a career.
Describe your work style?
I enjoy working with a team, utilizing the strengths of the individuals we have at MHC&S.
What are your favorite interests and hobbies?
I enjoy being involved with my children’s activities (sports and school), family vacations and spending time with friends and family.
