Make a prediction about your industry or the clients you serve.
Change is inevitable, and if the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that you have to plan for the worst and hope for the best! Disruption, particularly amongst the nonprofit industry is not going away, and figuring out how to leverage your position both with government granters as well as donors is critical. The shrinking pool of talent while employment costs rise will likely also impact nonprofits disproportionally and may lead to additional consolidation within the industry, as well as more reliance on outsourcing, even positions outside of accounting and finance.
What is it about Accounting that attracted you to the field?
What drew me to accounting (and keeps me in accounting), particularly auditing, is that two days are never the same! There is always something new or challenging that our clients have done, new research to take in, new people to meet. It’s never boring!
What drew you to Sassetti?
After spending several years auditing for a “Big 4” firm, what drew me to Sassetti is that work/life balance is not just a catch phrase that is thrown around. It’s part of the culture and fabric of how we do things.
Describe your work style.
Type A+ – Detailed, hardworking and accurate. I expect a high standard from myself as well as the people I work with
What is your greatest accomplishment?
Realizing and accepting (most days) that it’s not possible to be totally balanced. Somedays I have to wear the partner hat more than the mom hat, and somedays it’s the opposite, and that’s ok.
