- Based In Portland
A job taken fresh out of college has turned into a very rewarding career in accounting. I have found that I like the detail and accuracy required in accounting but I especially like taking the accounting processes and making them more efficient. I also really enjoy working with other people; problem solving and providing information that helps in understanding the business financials.
I have worked in accounting for most of my career; specializing in small to medium size companies. I have a well rounded accounting background having worked with AP, AR, Payroll, Cash, month-end closings and financial reporting. I also bring a working knowledge of sales and customer service; skills learned while working as the accounting manager within a small marketing division and also when I had the opportunity to back up the operations manager of a very small manufacturing business. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and post graduate courses in accounting that have helped me to become a proficient Staff Accountant.
