What do you love most about being part of Aspiriant?
Aspiriant is truly the first firm I have worked for that ‘checks the boxes’ on all of the important things that I want in a career – a motivated, intelligent team, an inspiring mission to help people, the opportunity to grow while mentoring others, and an opportunity to participate in the ownership of the company and contribute to its success.
What professional accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’ve held an active California CPA license since July 2006, and I was the finance lead for implementing three different ERP systems for three different organizations.
What quality of yours makes you best suited to what you do?
I am detail-oriented, have a strong work ethic, value personal and professional integrity, a team player, a passion for problem-solving, trustworthy and reliable, very well-organized and steadfast.
How should people think about their wealth?
Money should work for you, not vice versa. Building wealth doesn’t have to mean sacrificing happiness. Time is more valuable than money.
What do you love to do outside of work?
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my brothers and their families. I love taking the kids to different places and enjoying good food.
What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?
Providing for son as a single mom. Being his mother has given me the strength and motivation to work harder and smarter; I am a stronger and better person because of him.
