We felt it was time our clients got to know a little more about Emma.
How would you describe yourself?
Captain Brunhilda- Mighty Warrioress who SLAYS GST returns!!! Or something like that? I am cheeky little red-haired princess. I am a giant nerd. Yesterday my partner asked me to explain excel and I got OVERLY excited- I raved about all it’s wondrous functions for at least 15 minutes…. I am a nerd. A BIG nerd. A nerdy nerdy nerd.
What is your favorite thing about working at Homeroom?
My sisters-from-other-misters also known as the delightful ladies I am blessed to work with.
What are your ultimate personal goals?
- Marry Bruce Willis
- Live in a big pink castle
- Get a pink winged unicorn (or a pegasus/unicorn? A pegicorn? a unisus?).
AND most importantly to be happy and for my son to grow up happy and well-adjusted.
Why do you love bookkeeping so much?
I love how there is no grey area with numbers, they either add up or they don’t!! I also really like stamping all the receipts with the ‘Posted’ stamp because it makes me feel important.
What is the funniest item you have had a client attempt to write off?
Once I had a client try to write off hair replacement therapy.
Describe your ultimate bookkeeping client?
Friendly, challenging and organized. They should also bring me presents. Especially cupcakes or chocolate.
