Career Spotlight: Abbie Niehoff

Abbie balances her work as a financial planning and litigation support paralegal at CBM with her Master’s degree classes at the George Washington University. She plans to complete her degree in December.

What do you enjoy most about working at CBM?

I would say the people and the different events. I also like the environment here because it allows me to balance work and school. I can come in early or late, make up hours when I need to and occasionally I take a day off if I have an exam.

What led you to CBM?

I worked at May and Barnhard for five months before the merger. I graduated from Towson University and worked as a legal assistant for the last two years of college. I knew I wanted to go into the legal field but didn’t know how until I found May and Barnhard. Divorce and litigation has been very interesting.

Do you have any tips or advice for people trying to make it into the accounting field?

Communication. Also remember your big picture goals. Of course I would like to have my weekends back and have more freedom, but you can do anything for a short amount of time. So just stay focused and work hard for what you want.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to run, read, binge watch TV, go to the beach and travel.

What would your co-workers be surprised to learn about you?

I was supposed to play D1 soccer in college, but I broke my back when I was 16 and couldn’t play anymore.

If you could retire now, and money wasn’t a concern, what would you do with your free time?

I would buy a house, travel, adopt a lot of corgis and golden retrievers. Also, I would pay off my student loans.

What is your favorite quote or motto?

Just keeping swimming.

What is something on your bucket list?

Skydiving.
