At Vickers Design Group, I’m the resident girl with accent. Born, raised and educated on Long Island, I never imagined I would land in the south. But here I am, and I am glad I came. Don’t get me wrong—I miss beach, bagels and pizza, but I have taken a fancy to southern lake and poolside living. And I am proud to be (almost) the only team member to bring the north into this southern equation. My first intro to accounting came in high school. After graduation, a junior accounting position in a mid-sized corporation sealed the deal on my career. With an accounting degree from Long Island University, I embarked on a 10-year path in corporate accounting in New York. Then, my husband and I decided to relocate to the “country” or otherwise known as Atlanta.

Here, I worked as an accounting consultant for 11 years, which is how I met Vickers Design Group. I take charge of all things accounting. Think jack-of-trades when it comes to finance and HR—ready to dive into special projects, suss-out profitability and keep things compliant. A self-starter, I strive to take on responsibility and lift off burden, so team members keep doing what they do best. I bring years of experience to the table every day with a smile. I’m happiest in the summer, staying active outdoors with family and friends. I work hard and enjoy life, with a go-with-the-flow attitude that exudes happy.
