Posted by on 08.11.16

​Describe your role at Weber O’Brien:  
I work mainly with business owners, their businesses, and high-income taxpayers.

What do you think is most gratifying about your work?
Working directly with clients is most gratifying, being available to assist as their tax needs expand. In some instances, I am now working with second generation owners, having the pleasure of working with their parents for many years.

How long have you been with the Firm?
In December, it will be thirty years since I joined the firm. Where has the time gone?

What do you like best about working at Weber O’Brien?
I enjoy working with the young staff, many which joined us as interns and now have a number of years of experience with us. It is always wonderful to see them continue to grow on the path to their future.

The firm has continued to grow, maturing into one of the best firms around and expanding our outreach and services while maintaining quality.

How do you like to spend your spare time?
Being with family - doing almost anything or nothing at all; traveling, relaxing with my two collies.

What is something people may be surprised to find out about you?
I am the “Recycling Ambassador” of the office, trying to recycle as much as possible. I try to live by a quote I heard many years ago that advises that we don't inherit the earth from generations before us, but rather we borrow it from future generations.
