Point of View

I think client service is the most important quality in public accounting. Providing excellent client service requires team work amongst staff members, at all levels.


My clients have been a big influence on me throughout my career.  If I was not providing a service for a non-profit I would be working for one. Their passion for various causes including the environment, immigration, prison reform, children’s needs and assisting women of color who have HIV/Aids, makes me want to contribute to their success by providing the best client service possible.
