How long have you been in the industry? How long have you been at DEI? I’ve been working in the accounting field for 13 years. I’ve been with DEI for about 2 ½ years.
Where did you go to school/receive your training? I spent two years at WSU before coming to my senses and transferring to UW. Go Dawgs!
What projects are you currently working on? Aside from the everyday accounting needs of DEI, I’m assisting with our new office building project. Once that wraps up, I’ll begin the process of evaluating and implementing new accounting/CRM software.
What was your first job? I worked at a veterinary clinic doing cleaning/janitorial
What would you be doing if you were not an accounting manager? Most of my hobbies involve crafts/design such as knitting, sewing, and more recently woodworking. I like the process of making something with my own two hands.
Where is the farthest place you have traveled? I’ve been to Europe a handful of times, I think the farthest I’ve been is Italy.
Where would you go on a dream vacation? Someday I would love to travel to Peru. My dad grew up there, and I would love to see it for myself. Also, for the food! If you’ve never tried Peruvian food I highly recommend it.
What is something about you that would surprise people? I’ve witnessed an exorcism (of a place not a person).
