Why did you join William Vaughan Company?

I was relocating to Northwest Ohio and looking for the right accounting position with a quality firm. William Vaughan Company came highly recommended. I was told they had an excellent reputation in the community and were known for their family-oriented firm culture.

What are you most passionate about in your work?

Connecting with my clients. I really enjoy being out in the field on audits because it gives me the opportunity to personally meet with clients and get to know their business in greater detail.

What has been your most rewarding client experience?

I have established a rewarding relationship with many of my clients, and one in particular. Their business is constantly growing which lends to me being consistently challenged. They definitely keep me on my toes. For me, it’s gratifying to work so closely with a group of people and to experience their ongoing success.

What makes William Vaughan Company different?

Flexibility. Being a mom of three children, the firm allows me to flex my schedule based on the time of year. I am so grateful I can spend quality time with my kids and still do the work I love.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Spending time with family and friends and being outdoors riding my bike and running.

What’s a fun fact few would know about you?

I am extremely superstitious! Not a huge fan of any Friday with the number 13, black cats, or walking under ladders.
