What do you like most about B2?
The opportunity to expand upon my previous small business bookkeeping and payroll experience for several small businesses (oil and gas, manufacturing, and legal services) to full service accounting for numerous law firms with differing accounting requirements, while at the same time having the support of the experienced B2 team.
What have you gained from working at B2?
A more thorough understanding of accounting principles and practices, increased accounting skills, and the use of billing and accounting software as applied to multiple clients with differing requirements and expectations.
Why do you believe an exceptional customer service experience is crucial?
From my time at B2, I have gained the perspective that accounting is more than posting, adjusting, and summarizing numbers, but also requires of me the ability to listen to, understand the needs of, and to work well with my clients as part of their team such that their expectations of B2 are exceeded.
How has B2 helped you in your career development?
The opportunity to gain knowledge of in-depth accounting services, to develop alternative solution thinking skills, to tackle personal time management, and to engage with the developers of accounting software, all of which were not previously within my bookkeeping comfort zone.
What is your favorite quote, motto or personal mantra?
“It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.” John Wooden
