What is your favorite quote?
Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
If you were not an accountant, what would you be?
A librarian! It combines my love of organizing, reading, and research. I even have a vintage card catalog in my home (though it doesn’t hold catalog cards!).
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am active in my children’s activities, including volunteering in the classroom, scouting, and watching swimming and sporting events. I like to spend my free time hiking and being outdoors with my family, as well as enjoying our cabin.
