"It's a marriage of my technical skills and what I love to do..."

I come from a for-profit background, but I have 20 years of service to the nonprofit community in my spare time. Working with the variety of different organizations and causes we have here is a real marriage of my technical skills and what I love to do as a volunteer. So this seems like a perfect career for me.

One of the things I love about YPTC is the diversity. When I embarked on my accounting career, I would change jobs periodically looking for new challenges. I won’t have to do that anymore because every day is challenging due to having different clients.

Our clients really love us. I’m just doing what comes naturally to me, but my clients think it’s amazing! I go into a lot of meetings where they come out beaming and looking forward to what comes next.

I was really impressed with the extensive interview process. It’s unbelievable the positive impact this place can have on every aspect of your life. Plus it’s a fun place to work.

This is by far the only company I’ve worked for in 20-plus years where the leadership sets the tone for the entire organization. I’ve never seen people at the top laugh and smile so much or be so supportive.

This place really stands up to the hype of what they tell you when you get hired. There’s no wizard behind the curtain: it’s WYSIWYG – what you see is what you get. It’s exceeded my expectations.
