I was born with this innate ability to make accounting fun, useful, and rewarding – just ask my mom. She said I popped out with an abacus and a laugh track – I made that ER a cash cow by the time I was 5 hours old!

I find that when speaking in front of accountants, business owners, managers, etc., I have an ability to entertain while educating. This is one of my greatest speaking characteristics and features. It’s important to make topics interesting whether it is about accounting, growing a business, or a simple success story.

Of all the gin joints – why did I choose QuickBooks and number crunching? Can you believe that I’m an accountant AND I love being with people? I know, I know, crazy combo, but here’s why… Because of the great lessons imparted by my parents, one of my core value beliefs is to leave people better than I found them. When I come across people while in the business world who are “out for themselves”, “out to only make money”, or simply don’t treat people with mutual respect, I intentionally separate myself from them. I’ve worked hard to get here so I might was well share!
