What makes us different from all our competitors?

“Team approach to client services.  I believe being non-departmentalized and setting up client service teams based on the needs of our clients is of great value and benefit to our clients.”

Is there any advice you would give to a person who is starting out in your chosen career?

“Be diligent in communicating with your client service team members. Public accounting requires much coordination amongst team members to get projects done – keeping others informed as to the status of work in progress is critical.”

What are you best known for and why (signature dish, special service you offer, etc.)?

“Home made lasagna….. secret family recipe, only make it once a year.”

If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?
