What is most rewarding about being an accountant?

I really enjoy helping our clients and our people grow and learn. Accounting is very much a people business and to work with our clients and team is very rewarding.

I won some art competitions in high school and was offered the chance to take more advanced classes. I declined. My award winning art work was put on display at the Ford City Mall.
