Amy started her career as an accountant right after graduating, but eventually left and began working for the state of Texas. While working at the state, she enjoyed collaborating with DK Partners—so when she was looking for a new job a few years later, she reached out. Though she never thought she’d go back into public accounting, Amy was drawn to DK Partners for its non-traditional, flexible schedule.
At any given time, Amy is responsible for overseeing a number of different projects, so she spends a lot of time planning and reviewing audits. She meets with team members as needed, and since her door is always open, she gets visitors almost hourly to ask questions or discuss a specific project. Amy also always makes time to take a walk with co-workers every afternoon to recharge and get out of the office.
"It's not like the Big Four where you would work in the same area for several weeks at a time for a big client. Here, you have an opportunity as a staff member to see many different areas of an audit before the project's complete."
“I think one of the most important skills of a good auditor that gets overlooked is communication—it’s not just about being able to understand a financial statement or debits and credits.”
