Assisting my clients, which range from health care, religious and voluntary health and welfare organizations to child care agencies, is extremely rewarding. It goes way beyond balance sheets and debits and credits when you realize that you are really making a difference in people's lives and impacting the future of an organization. Being able to support a client's mission means a great deal to me, and I encourage this philosophy within the culture of our firm.
