Q. What was it that drew you to Armanino?
Armanino has a refreshing young culture where you feel empowered to lead and make an impact on the growth of the firm, as well as on servicing clients. An example of this is that I am encouraged to lead the business management department’s technology initiative. This is very exciting and important to me because it allows us to propose and implement the technology that improves our client’s lives and the service we provide.
Q. Without naming names, tell us about your favorite client and why you enjoyed working with them.
My favorite clients are those who trust and are truly partnering with us, especially those in a growth stage. I enjoy going along in their journey and providing guidance in their evolution. This gives me an opportunity to set the foundation for their business, align their goals and help them grow even faster.
Q. Describe your work style.
I believe that as the world changes, your work style must adapt. That’s why I am versatile and adjust to the needs of each project. Overall, I’m collaborative and big on teamwork. I believe that accountability and visibility enable us to learn from each other and empower our team to grow together.
Q. What’s your proudest moment?
When one of my colleagues shared the great news that she got promoted and that I had inspired her to be more. I didn’t realize I had made such a positive impact on her. Learning this made me feel very proud of her accomplishment and of my part in helping her achieve that.
Q. If you could pass on a nugget of wisdom to aspiring accountants or consultants, what would that be?
One of my favorite quotes is “People don’t care what you know until they know that you care.” I believe that there are a lot of smart people out there, but what makes someone stand out is when you show others that you truly care. Genuinely looking out for others’ best interests and letting them know that you want to be of service is what makes them want to work with you.
