Quote – What excites you about your career?
“One of my favorite games growing up was Battleship, because to win you must employ strategy…see patterns where others see complexity. As an accountant I utilize strategy every day. I help clients explore alternative scenarios, evaluate potential obstacles and identify the path that will lead them to financial success. Seeing clients succeed is exciting!”
