Q&A

What is your favorite part of the culture at WG?

My favorite part of the W&G culture is the firm’s willingness to change for the benefit of its employees.  Change is difficult for many organizations but our firm embraces it in an effort to truly be one of the best places to work

What motivates you?

Learning new things motivates me.  Any time I encounter a transaction I have not seen before I am motivated by the opportunity to grow.  This enables me to be better at my job and be a better advisor to my clients.

If you weren’t an accountant/consultant, what would you be?

I would probably be a nutritionist.  I am always trying to find creative ways to get my family to eat vegetables.

What’s your next big adventure?

My husband’s goal is to go to all 50 states with our kids.  We are planning to go across the US in our RV, hopefully getting to Alaska in the process.  We have done a trip across the US before but as a family of 4, now we are a family of 6 so it will surely be a completely different adventure.
