What does a typical morning at work look like for you?
I always start my day with a moment of gratitude and prayer because it keeps me grounded. It's something that I do every morning and have been for many years.
Once I arrive at work, I look over my emails and calendar to prep for my day. It's quieter in the office in the mornings, so I take advantage of that time to get in the right mindset and prepare for my day.
After that, I typically work on my daily tasks, which vary based on the time of month or year. Usually, I prepare and organize financial transactions to help meet reporting deadlines.
Sometimes, I collaborate with stakeholders from other departments if we are working on any special projects . For these projects, I usually support by preparing monthly balance sheets, organizing income statements and setting up new accounts.
What drew you to your career path?
How has Mattamy played a role in helping you grow professionally?
Mattamy has given me most of my experience and growth in my accounting career. I'm a little bit of a unicorn, as I didn't have a degree when I was hired. However, I was able to take advantage of Mattamy's generous Tuition Reimbursement Program to help me gain the education I needed to go along with my professional experience.
How would you describe Mattamy’s culture?
Tell us about an experience where you felt ownership over your work or a project.
I don't know that I necessarily have a specific project because, to be honest with you, I feel a sense of ownership in all my tasks. Having that privilege empowers me to make decisions and forces me to be a strategic thinker, which helps me manage my projects daily. It's fulfilling knowing that the company values my ideas.
What excites you the most about your future at Mattamy?
Mattamy has already done so much in helping me achieve my education and career goals, and I look forward to continued growth and advancement opportunities that come my way. I enjoy being involved in all aspects of the business and working across all departments in our division and our corporate team, and I see nothing but a bright future for myself at Mattamy.
