Sharon Trabbic, PAFM

Chief Operating Officer

Why did you join William Vaughan Company?

I worked for another CPA firm before I joined William Vaughan Company. I enjoyed the industry and had worked with William Vaughan Company as a client years before. When the position became available, I applied and received an offer the same day.

What are you most passionate about in your work?

Helping everyone in the firm be as productive as they can be.

What has been your most rewarding client experience?

Helping a client work through a very complicated health insurance renewal. We were able to analyze each plan and determine the best solution for that particular group.

What makes William Vaughan Company different?

Flexibility with the employees. The partners are great to work with and for. The work environment is easy-going, friendly, and fun.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Babysitting my grandchildren! I love to read and have a goal to read 50 books a year. I also enjoy the civic organizations I am involved with including Rotary Club of Maumee, and the D.O.V.E. Fund, an organization that helps the children of Vietnam and the U.S. veterans that were deployed there during the 1960’s and 1970’s.

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

I was a synchronized swimming coach in high school.
