What is your greatest professional achievement?

Being able to teach staff and seeing them improve is truly rewarding. I have a sports background so everything I do is team driven. Teamwork is essential!

What’s the most rewarding thing about being an accountant?

It’s never boring! The variety of clients and industries we deal with is fascinating. Also, there’s a very big social aspect to being an accountant. The traditional stereotype of the “bean counter” is no longer applicable. Instead, we’re continuously reaching out to clients and working as a team.
