I became a CPA because I love the “public” part of public accounting. There is a misconception that accountants sit at a desk all day scrutinizing numbers and spreadsheets, but the reality is that we partner with people. Every day, we build and develop relationships.
My husband and I literally built our own house. We pounded the nails, poured the foundation, and learned all we could about construction, permits, and Michigan lien laws. I’ve always attributed my interest in construction and real estate to this experience.
