My road in life took a while to figure out.
I lucked into a good major at a good school (computer science was in demand at the time).
Got a job! I was able to pay the rent.
Found the right life partner (husband)- this is the most important decision in life!
Found a job at a company that encouraged me to do more than my job description.
Took a risk by changing from IT to Accounting.
Volunteered for extra assignments, but made sure I did an incredible job at my core job.
Keep following my journey

Problem Solving

Day to Day

I work with the business process outsource (BPO) team on a daily basis. Together, we solve problems about how to get all of the accounting work done that they are accountable for performing within contractual service level agreements (SLAs). I also help them overcome any obstacles that my company is causing that would hinder their ability to perform their work.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

You should enjoy math, writing, and computer programming. Math to develop the ability to analyze a problem and plan all the steps needed to solve the problem. Writing to be able to organize your thoughts and communicate them in a way that is easy for others to understand. Computer programming because we live in a technical world that is getting more and more technical. Taking computer programming will take the mystery out of technology and make it less intimidating.
