What drew you to Berlin Ramos?
With my love for accounting and the fact that I knew one of the partners personally, I was sure it would be a great place to work. Not only has that been true, but after 20 years, it still exceeds my original expectations.
What aspect of your career are you most passionate about?
I’m passionate about helping small business owners create efficient and productive accounting habits. My expertise in QuickBooks allows me to set up accounting systems correctly and simplify the process so management can concentrate on running and growing their business.
What brings you the most satisfaction at the end of the day?
Knowing that I helped a business owner alleviate stress from day-to-day accounting as well as avoiding turmoil from federal and state tax issues. When the business no longer has to waste valuable time with such obstacles, it comforts me to know that by them allowing me to do what I do best, they are able to do what they do best – grow their business.
How has your career helped you out in your personal life?
Living in a close-knit community, I can volunteer my expertise with groups such as the Women’s Club. I am able to manage my personal finances and assist family members with their finances and tax-related issues more efficiently. In my community, I am a resource for organizational tasks, accounting, and tax advice.
Can you talk about a client project that made you feel extra proud?
I took a client from an excel worksheet to a fully automated, seamless accounting system, saving them time as well as providing them with a snapshot of their status at any given moment. That gave me a good sense of accomplishment. I like eliminating a client’s financial anxiety.
