To Whom It May Concern:

I am actively pursuing immediate, full-time employment that will take advantage of my breadth of experience in the
operational and administrative sides of business. I am confident that my experience in full cycle accounting for multiple
clients/entities, small business management, and my strong communication and collaboration skills make me an ideal
candidate for a variety of accounting and finance roles.
I am currently in my third year of an online degree program at WGU, working toward my Bachelor of Science in Accounting,
and studying to take the Certified Professional Controller (CPC) exam within the next few months.
Working at a mortgage brokerage and an accounting firm, I was often up against tight deadlines that required outstanding
attention to detail and organizational skills to deliver complete and accurate reports, presentations, and other complicated
financial documents on time and within established guidelines.
In my work at the mortgage brokerage, I was responsible for keeping all fiscal records and preparing for the annual audits
required for federal and state brokerage licensure. I also managed the business licensing, tax reporting, and regulatory
compliance for each of the six states in which we operated.
At the accounting firm, I was responsible for full cycle accounting including daily/weekly bookkeeping, month-end close,
account reconciliations, payroll processing & tax filings, city & state business tax filings, and federal income tax preparation for
the firm and multiple clients. I worked with clients across a variety of industries, including retail, wholesale, ecommerce,
manufacturing, hospitality, construction, technology, financial services, health services, property management, and more.
While I do like the excitement of working with several different clients, there is a limit to the amount of impact I have on each
business development as an outsourced accountant. I would like to focus on working for one company and help build the
business as a key member of the team, where my impact can be seen and felt.
I heard a saying recently, "I'm a mile wide and an inch deep." That really hit home for me. I want to take my knowledge and
experience deeper and higher, rather than wider. Im looking for a long-term career opportunity with vertical growth, rather
than the lateral growth I've experienced over the last 8 years.
I have exceptionally strong computer skills, including the entire Microsoft Office Suite on both Windows and Mac platforms. I
have also worked with multiple accounting and ERP systems, including QuickBooks, NetSuite and Dynamics GP. I am always
looking to increase my skills, knowledge, and productivity by taking continuing education classes on my own time, and
implementing updated technologies and procedures.
After my daughter was born in 2013, I took an extended maternity leave and eventually decided to continue working parttime on a freelance basis instead of going back to full-time work immediately. Being a freelancer for the past three years, I
am extremely self-motivated, able to work independently and take initiative. I also work very well on teams, able to both
give and receive direction effectively.
My daughter is now in pre-school and enjoying her newfound independence, and I am excited to get back to work full-time
and continue building my career, knowledge and experience in a challenging position that rewards me for my hard work
and dedication.
I have attached my resume, and look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
