What unusual skills or talents do you have that makes you an Individual?
I have the patience to handle any task and a willingness to work through the bumps. Because of my artistic ability, I think that I can see differently and look outside a box to find unique ways to find a work around for a project at hand. This enables my clients to see what they need as well as staying within the rules of accounting. I am willing to do whatever it takes to make it right.
What is the best thing about your career at LBC?
I love working with Phyllis and our unique team! We all work well together with the one common goal of meeting our clients’ needs. I also enjoy visiting our client locations to understand their work and environments to see we can help.
What is your ideal vacation?
Just being able to unplug and unwind in a garden chair along the shady side of a lake with a log cabin in the background while reading a mystery novel or love story!
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
Time travel — where you can go anywhere without restrictions or needing to worry about what time it is. Do not want to miss anything.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Depends. Sometimes it is butter pecan, other times it is coffee ice cream covered in hot fudge sauce.
