Career mentor:  “So many people have helped shape who I am, I can’t limit the list to this page.  But if I had to say who had the earliest influence on my career, I would have to say Barclay Bradshaw … Barclay taught me that being a CPA isn’t just a job, it’s a career.  You are part of something big and have the power to change people’s lives and make your community a better place to live and work.”

How did you decide to become a CPA?
“I am the daughter of a nurse and a self-employed logger.  Being raised in a self-employed family taught me strong work ethic, the value of your community and the importance of sound financial decisions.  The skills I have learned being a CPA has given me the opportunity to help women who are recently divorced, college students who needed a budget and a certain bright young entrepreneur who makes the most amazing gluten-free bread!”
