Job title: Senior Manager

 

Why are you working in this industry? My goal is to create positive relationships with my clients, by working together as a team to improve their financial reporting processes and being a partner in their business success.

What are three daily habits that have helped you to become successful? Setting expectations/tasks for the day, be encouraging to others, and enjoying time with family.

 

Who is the person who most influenced you in business? My grandaddy, Billy Wayne Roe.  His hard work and success taught me the importance of maintaining a strong work ethic while prioritizing time with family.

 

What is the best advice you have ever received? Do not worry about things that are out of your control but focus your energy on things you can.

 

What was your first summer job? Working at my grandaddy’s business. He’s a tough boss.

 

Where will we find you enjoying your hard-earned time off? I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children traveling and attending Texas Tech football games!
