Why did you join Dowling & Yahnke?

I was really impressed with the Firm’s culture, and it is exactly what I was looking for. My friends and colleagues know of D&Y’s reputation and encouraged me to accept the offer. 

 

What is the most challenging part of your role?

A big challenge I am continually faced with is keeping track of changing regulations and making sure things are updated and completed in a timely manner.  

 

I am happiest when:

I spend time with my family. Especially when my brothers, sisters, and I are together, and we reminisce about all of the crazy things we did when we were younger.

 

Do you have any pets? Do you have a favorite pet?

We currently have two dogs who are brother and sister. We got them when they were just puppies and they are now 12 years old. We only wanted to get one dog. But when we went to pick up one of the dogs, my husband looked at her brother and wanted to take him home, too. He said it is easier to have two dogs as they can keep each other company. He neglected to mention that it will also be twice as much work, but they are worth it. 

 

What personal accomplishments are you most proud of?

One of the things I am most proud of was going to school full-time while obtaining my undergrad and Master’s degrees. It was very challenging, but I learned to prioritize and be more disciplined at work and at school.
