‘Every good idea comes from a grain of truth—something that someone believes in so strongly as a seed of bounty that it doesn’t just make a couple of people’s lives better. It’s a win for everyone. Within the accounting group, we have so much information at our fingertips to help the firm and its clients achieve their goals. A combination of hard data and establishing common ground with our clients allows us to build products and relationships that we’re really proud of. Making investments that give everyone equal footing inspires me and makes me feel grateful to do this work every day.’
