"My clients enjoy seeing me..."
I came to YPTC in 2009 after 12 years in public accounting, and found this work to be a lot less stressful. One of the major benefits over public accounting and auditing is that in my previous career my clients dreaded seeing me, but at YPTC they enjoy seeing me. On my birthday recently, they sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to me – that was a treat!
I enjoy the hands-on nature of the work, and I love the variety: I’m exposed to a lot of different types of nonprofit organizations. The YPTC staff has been friendly, receptive and welcoming to me, and there’s a great mentoring program.
