Growing up, most kids have their sights set on certain career paths. Some want to be a doctor, policeman, teacher – all classic and great aspirations! I didn’t really have anything in mind until I took my first accounting class in high school: it was the perfect combination and utilization of math, organization, and attention to detail, and it just spoke to me. After graduating high school in Trumbull, Connecticut, I went on to attend Southern Connecticut State University.
While the two subjects are vastly different, in college I wavered between wanting to work in elementary education or in accounting. Throughout my time in college, I worked at an after-school program for kids aging between 5 and 12 by helping them with their homework and other fun activities. During this time, I not only learned the importance of patience and structure, but it helped me choose between the two majors. I ultimately went back to my first love and I received my Bachelor’s degree in Accounting.
After graduation, I began working for a telecommunications company in the Accounts Payable department. After getting my feet wet working in the field, I decided it was time to look for another opportunity. I wanted to branch out into other facets of accounting and be able to grow with the company and thankfully, I came across the job listing for an Accounts Receivables Clerk at Holler Law Firm.
I read review after review on Indeed of the employee experiences at Holler Law Firm and knew I had to apply. Right from the start of the interview process through the offer and meeting the team, everyone was friendly and had that “can do” attitude that makes a workplace something more than just work. After starting out as a Staff Accountant, I have been given the opportunity to learn and grow with the company to my current position as Accounting Manager.
When I am not working, I enjoy playing softball, watching all things sports, and spending time with my family and friends.
