How long have you worked at QBS and what is your role?

I joined QBS as Payroll Manager in May 2020. My role at QBS involves analyzing payroll problems and providing appropriate resolutions, working with clients on payroll procedures, developing best practices to improve efficiency and accuracy of payroll processes, staying current on payroll laws, processing payrolls, and supervising a great team of awesome people.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

I enjoy researching and solving problems. I rarely shy away from a challenge, and I love the satisfaction that comes with successful strategic planning!

What is one of the biggest challenges you face in your role?

The COVID pandemic unleashed a plethora of new payroll and tax laws that have required a lot of extra attention and time. Staying on top of the ever-changing rules and processes has been challenging.

What makes QBS different/unique from other places you’ve worked?

I worked for a nonprofit organization for 11 years before coming to QBS. Now, I have an opportunity to work for a mixture of different business types.

What would you be doing for a career if you weren’t doing this?

Accounting is my niche.

What’s one interesting fact about you that we may not know?

I studied Shakespeare abroad.

Anything else you’d like to share? (Family, Hobbies, etc.?)

I spend my free time renovating and making repairs to my house and spending time with my daughter.
