What do you like best about working for Kelling CPA Ltd.?
The people—they are wonderful coworkers.

Who are the Inhabitants at your residence?
My mother, myself and our dog, Fred.

What are three traits that define you?
I am always willing to help, and I’m trustworthy and kind.

What is your motto or personal mantra?
Do the best you can do!

What's your dream occupation—the one job you'd love to have if you weren't doing what you're doing now?
It’s not really considered to be a job, but I’d love to be a lottery winner :)

What is the best place you’ve traveled to and what makes it so?
Alabama—that is where my sister and her family live. My favorite part of Alabama is a beach about an hour away from the gulf—it’s so nice and peaceful. The people we have met are very sweet, kind and polite; we always hear "yes ma’am" or "no ma’am." It’s a very slow and laid-back pace of life and most are not in a hurry whatsoever!

What one accomplishment are you most proud of?
Learning a new job after spending 37 years in a different field of employment.

What's on your bucket list?
I would love to travel to Hawaii and take an Alaskan cruise.

What's your guilty pleasure?
I love chocolate and enjoy playing bingo.
