I love numbers. I always excelled in mathematics throughout my academic career so it was natural for me to choose accounting as my major in college. I really enjoyed my accounting classes and I believed that I would become a successful accountant.
Why RitzHolman CPAs?
You're entrusted with responsibility from the very beginning and involved in the whole process from the initial meetings to the field work to preparing the tax return. Plus, there's a closeness here that you won't find at a Big Four firm. The partners are here every day, and you work with them every day. There's a real opportunity to grow and develop; I was hired as a staff accountant, and now I'm a partner.

Type of Work
What I like about working on the nonprofit team is the client contact. Many of our clients welcome our ideas on how to improve their organizations controls; before we've completed the field work, they've implemented our recommendations.
Time to Work
I have three children and I'm working towards becoming a CPA. Although our clients needs and deadlines are a high priority, I can choose how to meet them. The firm recognizes the value of family. If necessary, I am able to work from home.
We use the word teams here because we really do work together. I'm always welcome to walk into a partners office and have a conversation. I feel like I am part of the team.
