Tell us about your career development.

Out of college I spent several years in the public school system teaching business classes which was very gratifying. After leaving education I found myself in various bookkeeping positions at Slawson Oil Co., Pepsico Food Systems, Pizza Hut Inc., and Adorers of the Blood of Christ. In each job I was given opportunity to learn many aspects of accounting. Today I support our clients with Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, General Ledger maintenance and review. I really enjoy the variety my job brings

What sets Profit Builders apart from its competitors in the industry?

Every person is valued no matter what their job is. And, there is a sense of community that extends outside of the office.

Profit Builders's PROWORK system concentrates on the relationship between employer, employee, and the payroll provider. How do you feel that connection is important?

The PROWORK system is a Cloud-based system that allows employees, employers and processor to work together. Profit Builder’s payroll staff has the payroll and tax expertise to process each payroll timely and accurately, each client has a portion of the ownership in making sure all of the employee’s data is correct, and employees have access to their pay history at any time. It has strengthened the confidence and efficiency of the payroll service we are able to offer.

Tell us about your family and hobbies.

My husband and I have been married for over 32 years and we have one son who is now 23 years old and soon to be married. Over the years we have enjoyed hosting 19 foreign exchange students in our home from all over the world. We love to be with family and friends and when possible, we travel. When not working I enjoy my garden, sewing, reading, baking and taking long walks with our dogs.

Tell us one fun fact about yourself.

In 1999 we swapped homes with a family from Brazil. They came to Wichita KS to live in our home and we lived in their home in Caruaru, PE Brazil, for 6 months. Our son attended kindergarten there and we learned to speak Portuguese, worked with children and youth in a church, and made a lot of new friends. It remains one of the most memorable experiences we’ve had.
