Our Craig’s list ad for an office administrator began as follows:
Small, downtown CPA firm needs a bright, pleasant, conversational, over organized everything to help with everything. You have to have an extended sense of family so that you can learn to love our very lovable clients. If computers scare you, this job will be a nightmare. If pressure scares you, hit the delete button now. Change happens at least twice a day.”
That was the ad Brittany answered, and we are so happy she did.
Brittany graduated with honors from Gonzaga University in 3 ½ years and still did a semester in Granada, Spain. I don’t know whether it is her education in International Studies & Language that gives her poise and maturity, or whether it is her genes. However she developed her personality, you will notice it from the moment she answers the phone or sends you an email. She is that bright, pleasant, conversational person we advertised for, and she is that in spades!
The organizational skills that helped Brittany be a success in college have been applied from day one in tracking every document that comes into the office and every return or appeal that goes out. Brittany is poised, both beyond her years and for a successful career.
In addition to her time in the office, Brittany enjoys working with the youth at her church, dancing and exploring the different cultures within Portland. Brittany jumps at any opportunity to volunteer, especially when it involves travel and speaking Spanish.
The next time you call, chat her up - in English or Spanish.
