What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I love spending time with my husband and two daughters. We enjoy taking them to the zoo, shopping, and playing outdoors. I enjoy crafting, reading, and gardening in my spare time. 

What is your background?

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and then moved to Lincoln, Nebraska in 2015. In high school, I participated in water polo and swim sports. I went to college at California State University Long Beach and graduated with a degree in accounting. After college, I accepted a full-time position at Price Waterhouse Coopers in 2012 and obtained my CPA license. I worked in the Entertainment and Media Communications Technology industry as an Assurance Associate. MY main clients were Paramount Pictures and the Los Angeles Lakers. In Lincoln I got married, had two beautiful daughters, and began working at Florell & Barnhard, P.C.

What do you like about working at BMG?

I like that everyone seems to have a commitment to quality and hard work. I like the tone at the top and enjoy everyone’s energy and commitment to their work.

What are the values that drive you?

Honesty, reliability, and dependability are the values that drive me everyday to be the best version of myself as it relates to my personal and work life. Honesty is important considering I have an ethical responsibility to my clients and the firm I work for, to do what is right. I believe it is important to be reliable as an employee, to show up on time, and be professional.

What are your credential / past experience?

Starting my career at a “Big 4” firm allowed me to be trained by professionals in our industry. I learned the importance of professional skepticism and best practices in the Assurance practice.
