Describe your ideal vacation. My ideal vacation would be some location near a beach. I love the summer weather and relaxing in the sun.  I would spend a lot of time playing with my daughter and eating delicious food. But vacations are depressing because you eventually have to come back to the real world.  I'm a pessimistic realist who loves the logic of accounting. 

How long have you been working at OTC?  I have been working at OTC since 2002. I was first hired as a staff accountant at OTC then I became a CPA and worked for a small local firm for a short amount of time. In 2007 I came back to work as the Financial Services Director for OTC.  Then I started as a full-time Instructor in 2008, when my amazing daughter was born.
